Nazi suspect deemed unfit for trial

BERLIN — A 94-year-old man deported from the United States for lying about his Nazi past is unfit for trial on allegations that he was an accessory to thousands of murders as an SS guard at Auschwitz, a German court said Friday.

The Ellwangen state court said Hans Lipschis is suffering from ‘‘worsening dementia’’ and couldn’t be tried. He was charged with 10,510 counts of accessory to murder on allegations he served as a guard at the camp from 1941 to 1943.
