German state court rules former Nazi, 86, not required to serve out life sentence





German court ruled Thursday that a 86-year-old former Nazi convicted of murdering three people during World War II will not serve out a 1949 sentence of life in prison handed down by a Dutch tribunal....

In February, a lower court in Aachen ruled the man, who now lives in a nursing home, could be sent to prison to serve out the sentence. The Cologne court's ruling overturns that decision.
