More information is expected soon about the condition of a German man charged with killing his much-older wife in the District of Columbia.

Albrecht Muth has become weak from fasting, and a D.C. Superior Court judge is expected to reassess on Wednesday whether he can continue acting as his own attorney.

Muth is awaiting trial in March in the August 2011 death of 91-year-old Viola Drath, a German journalist and socialite.

He is accused of fatally beating her inside the couple's row home in Georgetown.

The case has been mostly dominated by questions about his mental competency. Muth has said he's a brigadier general in the Iraqi army, but prosecutors say that claim is false.
