Kansas regulators have indefinitely suspended the medical license of a Manhattan doctor linked to drug overdoses among active-duty Fort Riley soldiers.

The Kansas Board of Healing Arts on Thursday cited the criminal charge filed against Michael P. Schuster in making its decision. The board also issued a public censure.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the board's decision through an open records request. Schuster has 15 days to request a hearing before the order becomes permanent.

The 53-year-old physician is charged in a federal criminal complaint with conspiracy to distribute drugs. He remains jailed pending a detention hearing Tuesday.

State regulators also revealed that Schuster on Tuesday voluntarily surrendered to the Justice Department his license from the Drug Enforcement Agency that had allowed him to prescribe controlled substances.
