    A Wisconsin man who was found mentally unfit to stand trial for the May shooting of an Amtrak conductor outside Chicago will be released to a secure senior living facility.

    The Daily Herald reports that an Illinois judge on Wednesday said he doubted 80-year-old Edward Klein would be restored to fitness.

    Klein will be sent to a facility in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, that specializes in care for patients with dementia. Klein is prohibited from leaving the facility except for an emergency.

    Klein has been held on $1.5 million bail since the shooting in Naperville. Conductor Michael Case testified that Klein was disoriented and frustrated during the trip. Case was shot in the abdomen.

    Doctors have diagnosed Klein with an impaired cognition disorder, dementia and neuro-cognitive disorder. He's from West Allis, Wisconsin.
