MUNICH — John Demjanjuk's family and attorney have told the AP that the 90-year-old's medical condition appears to be worsening as his trial in Germany drags on, as he was hospitalized for a second day in a row with dangerously low blood hemoglobin levels.

Demjanjuk, a former Ohio autoworker who is being tried on 27,900 counts of accessory to murder on allegations he was a guard at the Nazi's Sobibor death camp, was taken to a Munich university clinic Tuesday after complaining of chest pains, forcing that day's court session to be canceled.Though an EKG exam indicated that Demjanjuk had not suffered a heart attack, doctors said his hemoglobin level was down to a reading of 8 — with normal levels being about 14 to 18 — and that he needed to remain in the hospital, presiding Judge Ralph Alt reported as he called Wednesday's session off, as well.



Alt said doctors had told him that Demjanjuk had received a transfusion and was expected to be able to return to the courtroom Thursday.
