CHICAGO – An 80-year-old Wisconsin man accused of shooting an Amtrak conductor in suburban Naperville earlier this year has been deemed unfit to stand trial, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Edward Klein is accused of shooting an Amtrak conductor on the Naperville platform back in May. This week, a hearing is being held to determine what will happen to the man who lawyers say has a “dementia like” condition and will unlikely regain the mental capacity to stand trial. A judge could have the man committed to a state mental facility.

At a hearing on Monday, the victim, Michael Case, told the judge that he was “in shock” when Klein pulled out a gun and shot him.
