Jury selection begins in Jackson doctor trial

Jury selection begins for Michael Jackson's former doctor, who faces involuntary manslaughter charges in the pop star's death. Dr. Conrad Murray was at Jackson's bedside in his rented Los Angeles mansion when he was found not breathing on June 25, 2009, weeks ahead of a planned series of comeback concerts in London. The doctor's lawyers are expected to argue at trial that the pop star was addicted to sedatives and painkillers and could have given himself a second, fatal dose of propofol when Murray was out of the room. Murray, who pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter, has admitted giving Jackson propofol, a drug normally used for surgery, as a sleep aid. Murray faces up to four years in prison if convicted. Opening arguments are expected to begin in the last week of September. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters.
