German station assailant sent to psychiatric hospital

BERLIN – A man who stabbed four people, one of them fatally, at a German train station has been sent to a psychiatric hospital.

Police said Wednesday a medical expert concluded that the 27-year-old German was mentally ill and it could be assumed that he was at most partially legally responsible for his actions. A judge ordered him sent to a psychiatric hospital at a closed-doors hearing.
