Elderly Man Who Shot Amtrak Conductor Sent to Senior Facility

 

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) — A Wisconsin man who was found mentally unfit to stand trial for the May shooting of an Amtrak conductor outside Chicago will be released to a secure senior living facility.

 

An Illinois judge on Wednesday said he doubted 80-year-old Edward Klein would be restored to fitness. 

 

Klein will be sent to a facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, that specializes in care for patients with dementia. 

 

Klein is prohibited from leaving the facility except for an emergency. 

 

Klein has been held on $1.5 million bail since the shooting in Naperville.
