Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death: Jury

Nov 08, 2011

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s family declared “justice has finally been served” after Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted Monday of killing the pop icon — and sent right to jail.

“Michael was looking over us,” sister La Toya Jackson said as she left the courtroom, where 17 members of the famous clan gathered for the verdict.

“I’m happy now,” said the legendary singer’s mother, Katherine.

Murray, 58, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a surgery-strength anesthetic to combat the insomnia that gripped him in the midst of an attempted comeback.

The cardiologist faces up to four years in prison. A judge deemed him a flight risk and tossed him behind bars until a Nov. 29 sentencing.
