    Lishan Wang.

    An unemployed doctor accused of killing a Yale University physician is not competent to stand, a judge has ruled.

    Superior Court Judge Roland Fasano ruled on Tuesday that Dr. Lishan Wang must undergo a psychiatric evaluation and said there's a good chance Wang will later be deemed competent after receiving treatment, the New Haven Register reports.

    Wang, who recently lived in Marietta, Georgia, is accused of shooting Vajinder Toor to death in April outside Toor's Branford home.

    Police said Wang also fired at Toor's pregnant wife but missed.

    The two men once worked together at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center in New York and workplace confrontations with Toor and others there led to Wang's dismissal two years ago.

    Wang’s case is continued to Nov. 29.
