Lethal Malpractice

Michael Jackson’s former doctor is accused with negligence in the pop star’s death and will be charged with involuntary manslaughter. “The physician who injected Michael Jackson with drugs in the hours before his death is to be charged with involuntary manslaughter, with authorities accusing him of negligence in the singer's overdose. Dr Conrad Murray, a physician who joined Jackson's entourage last year to get him fit ahead of a grueling concert series in London, has been in law enforcement sights since it was revealed he was with the singer when he died in June. The criminal case, first reported by the Associated Press, comes nearly five months after the Los Angeles county coroner ruled the pop legend's death was a homicide, finding he was poisoned by an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol. The addictive intravenous drug is typically used in a clinical setting, not in the home. Murray had been Jackson's personal physician for about six weeks, and told investigators that another doctor had introduced the singer to the drug, which Jackson called his ‘milk’. Investigators have said Jackson obtained the drug using several different aliases.”
