NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A doctor charged with killing a Yale University physician over a workplace dispute has pleaded no contest to lesser charges and agreed to serve 32 years in prison.
Lishan Wang accepted a plea deal Friday in New Haven Superior Court.
The Chinese citizen was charged with murder in the 2010 killing of Dr. Vajinder (vah-JIHN’-der) Toor and with attempted murder for shooting at Toor’s pregnant wife outside the couple’s Branford home. Toor’s wife wasn’t hurt. Authorities say the shooting stemmed from a 2008 workplace dispute at a New York City hospital.
Wang pleaded to reduced charges of manslaughter, attempted assault and gun crimes.
Wang has been under a judge’s order to be forcibly medicated for mental illness to remain competent to stand trial.
Sentencing is set for Sept. 22.
