Judge: Kasem can go home to wife if doctors OK it

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — A judge says ailing radio personality Casey Kasem can return to the Washington state home where he's been staying with his wife if doctors approve.

Authorities say the 82-year-old Kasem was taken by ambulance Sunday to a medical facility after an argument between his wife and one of his daughters.

Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Jennifer Forbes said Monday that Kasem could return to the home near Seattle where he and his wife, Jean, have been staying with friends if there's medical supervision and doctors say it is safe to transport him.

Jean Kasem and her stepdaughter, Kerri Kasem, have been contesting who should make decisions about the entertainer's care. Kerri Kasem has said in legal filings that her father suffers from a form of dementia.
