Ohio retiree charged for time as Nazi camp guard

German authorities say they have charged retired Ohio auto worker John Demjanjuk with more than 29,000 counts of accessory to murder for his time as a guard at the Nazi's Sobibor death camp, and will seek his extradition from the U.S.
Demjanjuk is accused of participating in the murders while he was a guard at the Nazi camp in occupied Poland between March and September 1943.
The 88-year-old who lives in a Cleveland suburb denies involvement.
The Munich prosecutor's office, which is handling the case because Demjanjuk spent time at a refugee camp in the area after the war, said Wednesday it was working on the extradition request with the German government.
U.S. authorities have been seeking to deport Demjanjuk.
