After six days of testimony in a Los Angeles court, Judge Michael Pastor has ruled there is sufficient evidence in order to bring Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who was present when Michael Jackson died in 2009, to trial for manslaughter. As part of his ruling, the judge suspended the physician’s California licence until the trial’s conclusion. In his closing statement, Deputy District Attorney David Walgren told the judge, “Michael Jackson is not here today because of the negligence and reckless acts of Dr. Murray.” Prosecution witnesses testified that the doctor had acted outside the general standard of medical care by giving Jackson the powerful anaesthetic Propofol as a sleep aid. Jackson’s security guards revealed that Murray had asked them to remove evidence from the singer’s bedside before calling 911. Dr. Murray, who faces a maximum of four years in prison if found guilty, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
