A judge ruled Monday that Casey Kasem be fed, hydrated and medicated while he remains in hospice care, the L.A. Times reports.

Kerri Kasem and her father's doctors in Washington had implemented end-of-life measures after determining that feeding and hydrating him would cause him too much pain.

NBC News reported that his wife, Jean Kasem -- who opposed the move -- broke down in the corridor of the L.A. court Monday, falling to her knees as she repeatedly said, "Please don't let them kill my husband."
