Competency Hearing Scheduled for the Accused Killer of a Yale Doctor

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A state judge will be hearing arguments about whether a doctor charged with killing a Yale University physician he once worked with is competent to stand trial after receiving psychiatric treatment.
New Haven Superior Court Judge Roland Fasano ruled Dr. Lishan Wang incompetent to stand trial in September and ordered a psychiatric evaluation. The judge said there was a good chance Wang would be deemed competent after receiving treatment.
Another competency hearing is scheduled for Monday.
Wang, most recently of Marietta, Ga., is accused of shooting Vajinder Toor to death last April outside Toor’s home in Branford. Police say Wang also fired at Toor’s pregnant wife but missed.
Officials said Wang had confrontations with Toor and others at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York a few years ago.
