Michael Jackson’s doctor found guilty

Updated

A Los Angeles jury found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of pop legend Michael Jackson.

Murray sat stone-faced while the verdict was being read and remained calm as official led him out of the courtroom in handcuffs. He is being held without bail until his sentencing on November 29.

The King Of Pop died of an overdose of Propofol, a powerful surgical-grade anesthetic, on June 25, 2009, while under Dr. Murray’s watch. The prosecution painted Murray as a reckless caregiver who administered that final lethal dosage.

After a six-week trial, the jury reached its decision in less than nine hours. Fans erupted in cheers outside of the courthouse and members of the Jackson family quietly wept inside the courtroom.

Prosecutors displayed a shocking picture of Jackson’s lifeless body on a hospital bed. They also played a dramatic audio clip of a drugged out and slurring Jackson, recorded by Murray weeks before the singer’s death.

The Houston-based cardiologist now faces up four years in prison and his medical license could be revoked.

Around the time of his death, Jackson was suffering from bouts of extreme insomnia while gearing up for a round of comeback concerts.
