US judge: Holocaust Museum suspect cannot appear

A federal judge said Monday that the white supremacist accused of killing a guard at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum is in no condition to appear in court. At a hearing, prosecutor Nicole Waid said James von Brunn is in critical but stable condition at a Washington hospital. After a brief private conversation with attorneys from both sides, US Magistrate Judge John Facciola said he determined that it would not be possible for von Brunn to have an initial hearing in the next week, either at the courthouse or in his hospital room. Von Brunn's court-appointed attorney A.J. Kramer would not comment further about his client's condition, citing medical privacy, but said he was able to meet with him at the hospital on Sunday.
