The trial of suspected a Nazi war criminal in Manhattan ended after two weeks of testimony. But the federal judge will accept further evidence before issuing a ruling, which is not expected for several months. The judge will leave open court records while defense lawyers locate three potential witnesses who may have known Jakob Reimer during the war. Reimer is accused of lying about his wartime activities on a U.S. visa application and can be stripped of his citizenship if found guilty.
