Hollywood FAQs: Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor of the late singer and musician Michael Jackson, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter of the ‘Thriller’ singer on 8th November. With reference to last week’s statements from Deputy Defense attorney David Walgren and Ed Chernoff, the defense attorney of Murray, the final decision was given by the jury.
When the verdict was being read out, Murray was reported to have been sitting quietly on his seat and was later handcuffed and taken away from the courtroom. The doctor has been taken in to custody without bail and the final verdict would be given on 29th November 2011.
During the verdict, many of the family members of the veteran singer were present in the court room. Brothers Jermaine and Randy, parents Katherine and Joe Jackson and sister LaToya were present in the court room.
The mother of the late singer had said that she feels much better now and even sister LaToya had expressed her joy and added that Michael was looking over us. Several fans of the singer who had gathered outside the courtroom had erupted with joy and sang ‘Beat It’.
Murray was alleged with the charges of administering more than required doses of propofol, which is a powerful anesthetic that is given for patients undergoing surgery.
