Conrad Murray

Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, has gone on trial in Los Angeles, charged with involuntary manslaughter of the singer.

In Tuesday’s opening statement, lead prosecutor David Walgren told the court the evidence would show “Conrad Murray repeatedly acted with gross negligence, repeatedly denied appropriate care to his patient, Michael Jackson”.

Prosecutors said he acted with “gross negligence” and gave Jackson a lethal dose of the sedative propofol that caused his death in June 2009.

The defence said Jackson gave himself too much of the drug, a sleeping aid.

Dr Murray, 58, who denies the charge, could face four years in jail and the loss of his medical licence.
