A former federal employee accused of shooting an Amtrak conductor in west suburban Naperville is ruled mentally unfit to face trial.  A DuPage County judge handed down the decision to 79-year-old Edward Klein after a court-ordered evaluation found that the defendant suffered from cognitive disorder and dementia.  He could face commitment to a state mental health facility for the May 16 incident.  Klein is scheduled to appear at a status hearing on November 7th.
