The jury of the manslaughter trial of Conrad Murray over Michael Jackson’s death has delivered a guilty verdict within the last few minutes.
A jury of seven men and five women deliberated for two days before reaching a verdict only a few hours ago.
As the verdict was read, a woman, thought to be a member of the Jackson Family, yelled,”Yes!” in the courtroom.
The late singer Michael Jackson died on 25th June 2009 from an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol, which is mainly used in the operating theatre.
Conrad Murray could now receive a prison sentence of four years as well as losing his licence to practise medicine.
Dr Murray’s lawyers argued that Jackson self-administered a lethal dose of the drug while he was out of the room. In total, over 300 pieces of evidence were submitted to the court, including controversial images of Jackson’s dead body on a hospital gurney.
The court now has 24 days to sentence Conrad Murry, who is 58.
