Janet Jackson is very clear about who she thinks should be held responsible for the tragic death of her brother, Michael Jackson.

Dr. Conrad Murray "was the one that was administering [propofol]," she says in a new interview with Robin Roberts on ABC News, referring to the powerful anesthetic that killed the star. "I think he is responsible."

Murray, who has admitted administering propofol to the singer, has consistently denied any wrongdoing.

Janet Jackson, 43, also describes how she found out her brother had been rushed to the hospital – and how she later learned the shocking news that he'd passed away.
