Michael Jackson's doctor to be tried for manslaughter

Wednesday January 12, 2011

Doctor Conrad Murray, the personal physician of Michael Jackson will stand trial for involuntary manslaughter, it has been ruled.

Judge Michael Pastor said there was enough evidence to proceed with a case after the LA preliminary hearing into his death.

Dr Murray's license to practice medicine has now been suspended. The doctor – who has pleaded not guilty - faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

His lawyer Joseph Low said the case should be dismissed because prosecutors had not adequately proved how Dr Murray caused the Thriller singer's death.
