Andover, MA: Andover, Mass. doc who killed wife’s lover wants NH license

CONCORD, N.H. — A plastic surgeon who served eight years in prison for killing his estranged wife’s lover in a Massachusetts hospital room wants his license to practice medicine restored in New Hampshire.

WMUR-TV reports that 70-year-old Dr. James Kartell of Andover, Mass., told the New Hampshire Board of Medicine on Wednesday that he wants to get on with his life by making the maximum contribution to society and the best way to do that is to work as a physician.

Kartell’s wife was hospitalized in Methuen, Mass., in February 1999 when Kartell found a man who had been involved with his wife at her bedside. Janos Vajda was shot twice.

The state of New Hampshire doesn’t want Kartell to get his license back.

Massachusetts regulators say Kartell has not applied for reinstatement there.
