*File Photo* * MURRAY CONVICTED OF INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER DR. CONRAD MURRAY has been found guilty of the crime of involuntary manslaughter relating to the death of MICHAEL JACKSON. The medic has maintained his innocence amid accusations he administered the fatal dose of powerful anaesthetic propofol, which cost the King of Pop his life on 25 June, 2009. The six-week case was handed over to the seven-man, five woman jury to begin deliberations on Thursday afternoon (03Nov11) and jurors announced they had reached a decision on Monday (07Nov11). Jurors voted for a unanimous guilty verdict. Members of Jackson's family, including parents Joe and Katherine, and siblings LaToya, Janet, Jermaine and Randy, were all present in Los Angeles County Courthouse for the verdict. The singer's three kids - Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket - were not in court for the hearing. In a Twitter.com post before the verdict was announced, a nervous LaToya Jackson wrote, Verdict is FINALLY IN!!! I'm on my way! I'm shaking uncontrollably! Murray, who sat expressionless as the verdict was announced, faces up to four years behind bars.
