John Demjanjuk, the suspected Nazi death camp guard,  was convicted in Munich on Thursday of helping force roughly 28,000 Jews to death during World War II, the New York Times reported.

The 91-year-old retired American autoworker was then sentenced to five years in prison, but was released pending his appeal. His lawyers insist he is innocent.

Authorities charged that Demjanjuk worked as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943. The Times reported that he was sentenced to death in Israel in 1988, but five years later the conviction was overturned after it was decided it was a case of mistaken identity.

WASHINGTON — James von Brunn, the man charged with fatally shooting the Holocaust Museum guard in Washington in June will remain in a North Carolina prison until early January so the facility can complete psychiatric tests.

The warden at the Federal Medical Center at Butner, N.C. asked for more time because of  von Brunn’s  “several chronic medical ailments, which have inhibited the Federal Bureau of Prisons from conducting several tests and procedures necessary to render a comprehensive neuropsychiatric diagnostic assessment,” said a court order accomodating the prison’s request, which was signed earlier this month by U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton.
