Jury Reaches Verdict in Michael Jackson Manslaughter Trial

11/07/2011 02:30PM



After less than two days of deliberation, a jury reached a verdict Monday for Dr. Conrad Murray, accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

The panel buzzed the Los Angeles Superior Courtroom three times from the deliberation room, a signal that it had made a decision. The verdict was set to be read at 1 p.m. PT. Watch it live here.

In the six-week trial, prosecutors accused Murray, 58, of recklessly administering a lethal dose of the powerful anesthesia propofol to the King of Pop in June of 2009.



Defense attorneys claimed that Jackson, 50, was addicted to prescription medication and gave himself the drug when Murray had his back turned.
