Doctor guilty of killing Jackson

Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr Conrad Murray has been convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of the star.

Murray gave the King of Pop a fatal overdose of the dangerous anaesthetic propofol, jurors ruled.

Following a six-week trial, a jury of seven men and five women took eight-and-a-half hours to reach a unanimous verdict.

Los Angeles Superior Court heard that Murray gave the powerful sedative to the singer to help him overcome his chronic insomnia, but prosecutors said the use of the drug as a sleeping aid violated standards of care.

The court was told the "inept" 58-year-old doctor caused the star's death through negligence, depriving Jackson's children of their father.

Murray, who was due to be paid £150,000 a month for his role, acted in a criminally negligent way by using propofol as an insomnia treatment without the proper staff or medical equipment, the court was told.

Prosecutors said that he botched resuscitation efforts and lied to other medical personnel about his actions.

Murray's defence lawyers claimed Jackson self-administered the dose when the doctor left the room
