Judge's announcement could delay Duncan doctor's trial

DUNCAN, Okla._The presiding judge in a case of a Duncan doctor accused of shooting a man outside his ex-wife's house last year has disqualified himself, just days before the trial is scheduled to begin.

Dr. Oscar Morales Jr. was arrested last August after police said he shot his ex-wife's boyfriend in the leg during an argument. He was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Associate judge Dennis Gay has been in charge of the case since then, and gave no explanation for his decision to remove himself.

At this point, it is unclear whether Morales' trial will start, as scheduled, on Monday.
