A hearing is scheduled this week for a white supremacist accused of fatally shooting a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Earlier this month, the attorney for 89-year-old James von Brunn told a federal judge that his client was not well enough to come to court. Prosecutors said at the time that doctors told them Mr. von Brunn might be able to be transported to court later in the month.

Mr. von Brunn faces a first-degree murder charge in the death of museum guard Stephen T. Johns. Mr. von Brunn was shot in the face by other guards.

A hearing on Mr. von Brunn’s initial appearance is set for Thursday in U.S. District Court.
