Defendant Conrad Murray: Preliminary Hearing, Day 6

Conrad Murray’s preliminary trial wrapped up Tuesday with the medical examiner’s classification of Michael Jackson’s death as a homicide, even if he learned Jackson self-administered the final, fatal dose of propofol.

After 6 days of testimony, Judge Michael Pastor deemed Conrad Murray’s actions were outside the standards of medical care, and ordered him to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter.  Moments  after the ruling, Pastor suspended Murray’s license to practice medicine in California. One of Conrad’s attorneys felt the suspension could trigger similar actions in two other states where Murray practices. Lady Justice hopes Dr. Murray will be held accountable for his actions, and hopes the jury’s verdict will be honored (unlike the Anna Nicole Smith trial).

January 25 marks Murray’s return to court for arraignment, and Lady Justice will keep you appraised. Stay tuned…
