Klein in Court
This morning Edward Klein, the 79-year-old Wisconsin man charged with shooting an Amtrak conductor in Naperville on May 16, appeared in court. Attorneys once again discussed whether Klein is fit to stand trial based on his mental state. The decision was postponed, as attorneys need more time to get psychological and medical records from hospitals Klein has stayed at in Wisconsin. Klein will next appear in court on September 12.
