Michael Jackson's Doctor to Stand Trial for Manslaughter

Michael Jackson’s personal doctor is ordered to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter charges for allegedly killing the singer with an overdose of powerful sedatives. Conrad Murray, who claimed he was treating the King of Pop for insomnia when he died in June 2009, also had his license to practice medicine in California suspended. According to the AP, Murray will be arraigned on January 25, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled after six days of hearings regarding evidence that Murray tried to cover up giving Jackson an overdose of the drug propofol. If convicted, Murray could face up to four years in Jail and lose his doctor’s license if the case goes to trial.
