LOS ANGELES (AP) - The case against the doctor accused of
killing Michael Jackson has gone to the jury, with deliberations
set to begin Friday.
The seven-man, five-woman panel got the case Thursday after
spirited, daylong closing arguments by a prosecutor and defense
Prosecutor David Walgren urged the group to convict Dr. Conrad
Murray, arguing the Houston-based cardiologist was reckless with
Jackson's life and left his children without a father when he gave
the singer an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol.
Defense attorney Ed Chernoff countered that Jackson injected
himself with the fatal dose and prosecutors were trying to convict
Murray for the actions of Jackson.
