Jackson's doctor expected to be charged


Media speculation is growing over the possibility that Michael Jackson’s doctor will be charged with the singer’s involuntary manslaughter.

Ever since a coroner ruled that Jackson’s death last June at the age of 50 was a homicide by a drugs overdose, his doctor has come under scrutiny.

Although nothing has been officially confirmed, Dr.Conrad Murray is said to be in Los Angeles for meetings with his lawyers but has not so far been told to appear in court. The medic has always maintained he did not prescribe nor administer anything that should have killed Jackson.

If Murray is charged, he will face a hearing at which a judge will consider the evidence and decide whether he should go on trial.

Jackson’s death was primarily caused by the powerful anaesthetic Propofol, but a cocktail of drugs was detected in his body.
