Conrad Murray guilty in death of Michael Jackson

Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

An L.A. jury returned the guilty verdict Monday afternoon after deliberating for about 9 hours over 2 days.

The Los Angeles Times reports the 58-year-old cardiologist, who was charged with the lowest possible homicide offense, faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison and a minimum sentence of probation.

The case was based around several key items, including Murray providing propofol as a sleeping aid (at Jackson’s request) and issues surrounding attempts to resuscitate Jackson at the time of his June 25, 2009 overdose.

Following the verdict, Murray was handcuffed and taken into custody without bail until sentencing on November 29.
