Conrad Murray convicted in Michael Jackson's death
Harriet Ryan and Victoria Kim
A Los Angeles County jury convicted Michael Jackson's personal physician of involuntary manslaughter, concluding a trial that offered a glimpse of the last days of one of the world's most famous men by deciding that his death was a criminal act.
The verdict was delivered Monday in a windowless downtown L.A. courtroom a world away from the turreted Holmby Hills mansion where Dr. Conrad Murray had a $150,000 a month position that included providing what the pop star called "milk" the surgical anesthetic that ultimately claimed his life.
With its verdict, the jury found that Murray acted with criminal negligence and that those actions were a substantial factor in Jackson's 2009 death. The panel rejected the defense assertion that Jackson gave himself a fatal overdose of propofol and therefore bore complete responsibility for his own death.
