After six weeks, a jury has reached a verdict in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor. Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The King of Pop’s family including parents Katherine and Joe and siblings Randy and La Toya were present as the verdict was read. A female voice shrieked in the courtroom and fans cheered outside.
The seven-man, five-woman jury panel determined that the cardiologist was responsible for the pop icon’s death.
Murray was handcuffed at the defense table and taken into custody without bail. He will be sentenced on November 29 and faces up to four years in prison.
Jackson died in June 2009 at the age of 50 after receiving a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol, which Murray administered to help him sleep.
