Jackson’s doctor guilty of involuntary manslaughter

A Los Angeles jury has found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of pop icon Michael Jackson.

The personal physician to the musician had acknowledged he administered a powerful surgical anesthetic as Jackson sought to get to sleep. Murray was accused of careless administration of propofol in an unmonitored setting, reports The Los Angeles Times. He faces a possible four-year sentence and the likely loss of his medical license.
