A white supremacist charged with killing a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is scheduled to be arraigned this week in federal court. James von Brunn, the 89-year-old suspected shooter, was indicted in July on seven counts, including first-degree murder, bias-motivated crime, and killing in a federal building. Four of the charges make him eligible for the death penalty, if he's convicted. The arraignment is set for Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Washington.

Authorities say von Brunn shot and killed museum guard Stephen T. Johns on June 10. Von Brunn was shot in the face by other guards but survived. He has been hospitalized since the shooting.
