FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ A New York City medical examiner has been named Connecticut’s new chief medical examiner.

Dr. James R. Gill’s appointment was announced Thursday by the state Commission on Medicolegal Investigations, which oversees the medical examiner’s office in Farmington. Gill succeeds Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, who is retiring after 24 years as the state’s top medical examiner.

Gill is a 1992 graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine who has worked in the New York City medical examiner’s office for 15 years, most recently as a deputy chief medical examiner. He’s expected to begin the Connecticut job in mid-July.

Carver officially retired May 1 but continues to work under contract.
