Michael Jackson's Doctor To Stand Trial For Manslaughter
After a week long hearing, Conrad Murray will be tried for MJ’s death…
A judge has ruled that Michael Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, will stand trial for the King of Pop's manslaughter in June 2009.
The news comes after a week long pre-trial hearing, where judge Michael Pastor announced that the 57-year old medic will be tried for the involuntary manslaughter of the Thriller hitmaker.
According to The Sun, Pastor claimed their was "sufficient cause" that Murray was responsible for Jacko's death, after the prosecution presented evidence to persuade him that there was enough proof for Murray to stand trial.
The superior court judge stated: "The defence motion to dismiss the trial is denied. I believe that Conrad Murray should be held to answer the charge."
Pastor also suspended Murray's medical licence to practice in California, claiming it was "in the interest of the public safety."
Murray, who is accused of injecting MJ with a lethal dose of Propofol, denies the measure was enough to kill the singing legend.
His lawyers are expected to argue this further, claiming that Michael Jackson himself injected himself with a further dose of the milk-like substance, which proved fatal.
In a closing statement, attorney Josesph Low addressed that allegation that Murray killed Michael, claiming: "That defies common sense. Most importantly it defies everything you've heard about Dr Murray and what a good doctor he is and how much he cares about Michael Jackson."
"I do not believe Conrad Murray should be held responsible for killing Michael Jackson because he couldn't breathe life back into him."
He added: "Sometimes when it's your time to go, there's nothing you can do."
