BREMERTON, WA - The wife of ailing radio personality Casey Kasem has been given a California court order that temporarily suspends her powers to determine her husband's medical care amid concerns about his health and welfare.
    
The order Kitsap County sheriff's deputies delivered Friday also expands daughter Kerri Kasem's authority to determine whether her father, who's now in Washington state, is receiving adequate medical care.
    
Wife Jean Kasem said that her husband is getting the best possible care and she is "not going to allow anybody to shred (her) family on unfounded facts and malicious accusations."
    
In a statement, Kerri Kasem asked Jean Kasem to "do the right thing" and allow the 82-year-old man "to get proper medical treatment."
    
Kasem gained fame with his radio shows, "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40."
