A verdict is expected by the end of March in the trial of accused Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk, the presiding judge said Wednesday, as the 90-year-old retired autoworker's family accused the court of having already decided he is guilty.

Demjanjuk went on trial in Germany in November 2009 on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder for allegedly having been a guard at the Nazi's Sobibor death camp. He denies the charges, saying that he never served in any camp and has been mistaken for someone else.

A verdict in the case could bring an end to a decades-long saga, which started in 1981 when the US revoked his American citizenship, alleging he was the notorious Treblinka death camp guard "Ivan the Terrible" and had hidden the information when he immigrated to the United States.
