Dr. Conrad Murray Charged In The Death of Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

After an eight month investigation, Michael Jackson‘s doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for the pop singer untimely death on June 25th, 2009.

Jackson’s death was ruled a homicide after a toxicology report discovered that the powerful sedative Propofol and other sedatives ultimately caused Jackson to go into cardiac arrest.

Investigators have long accused Murray of using “gross negligence” in administering Propofol to Jackson, because the sedative is meant to be used strictly in hospital settings for patients recovering from surgery.

Murray is expected to surrender at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse this afternoon. Many of Jackson’s celebrity family members were seen entering the courthouse including his father Joe, mother Katherine, his brother Jermaine and sister LaToya.

If convicted, Murray faces up to four years in prison.
