A federal judge on Friday agreed to postpone until Tuesday a hearing on the condition of the suspect in the US Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting.
Magistrate Judge John Facciola granted a request Friday from prosecutors and the federal public defender representing James von Brunn to delay a hearing set for Monday.
Attorneys said in court documents that they needed more time to assess von Brunn's medical condition and his "eligibility to be transported" to court. No date has been set for the 88-year-old suspect's initial court appearance.
Von Brunn faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of museum guard Stephen T. Johns.
Von Brunn remains hospitalized after being shot by guards who returned fire. The FBI has said he is likely to survive.
