NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The Latest on the case of a mentally ill doctor charged with killing a Yale University physician (all times local):

4:25 p.m.

A doctor who is being medicated for mental illness against his will as he stands accused of killing a Yale University physician will not be allowed to act as his own attorney.

Connecticut Judge Thomas O’Keefe Jr. ruled Monday that Lishan Wang cannot represent himself. But the judge ruled earlier that Wang was competent to stand trial.

The Chinese citizen is 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. Authorities say the shooting stemmed from a 2008 workplace dispute.

The judge previously ruled Wang incompetent and ordered him to be forcibly medicated. Wang’s lawyers lost appeals challenging the medication order.

Wang’s lawyers have said he has delusional disorder and paranoia.
