NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut judge overseeing the case of a doctor charged with murdering a Yale University physician is asking the state Supreme Court for guidance on who should pay for the defense’s expert witnesses.

Forty-seven-year-old Lishan Wang is accused of fatally shooting fellow doctor Vajinder Toor outside Toor’s Branford home in April 2010. Police said the shooting stemmed from a dispute the two men had while working together at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York City.

Wang can’t afford a lawyer and qualifies for a public defender, but insists on representing himself at trial.

The New Haven Register reports ( ) that New Haven Superior Court Judge Patrick Clifford decided Tuesday to seek guidance from the state’s highest court on who will pay for the expert witnesses needed by the defense.
