Michael Jackson’s doctor condemned for causing his death
United States, November 7, 2011
Dr. Conrad Murray, who attended the pop star until her last days, was convicted after a trial of two and a half years for involuntary manslaughter.
During the last months of his life, Michael Jackson’s health faltered, which triggered his death. After that, it was suspected that Murray had abandoned his duties or acted with criminal negligence causing the death of his patient.
The verdict came nearly two and a half years after the death of the King of Pop, after it was shown that the doctor provided a series of drugs that, taken together, caused the death.
Murray confessed to having agreed to requests from Jackson, who suffered from insomnia, and giving him sleep drugs, especially propofol. It was the latter that caused the overdose.
The sentence will be announced in the coming days. The penalty could be of 4 years in prison.
