(CNN) - New developments in the family feud surrounding the critically-ill Casey Kasem.

A Los Angeles judge reversed his own earlier ruling Wednesday and gave Kasem's daughter Kerri the authority have doctors stop giving him infusions of food, water and medicine.

According to Kerri's lawyer, Kasem's doctor concluded the treatment was prolonging "the dying process" and adding to his suffering.

The ailing radio icon has been at the center of battle between his children from his first marriage and his current wife, Jean.

An attorney for Kasem's wife called the judge's ruling Wednesday "a death sentence."
