Jackson doctor guilty of manslaughter

Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's personal doctor was found guilty on Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death.

Dr Conrad Murray had pleaded not guilty to giving the Thriller singer a fatal dose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol, which was ruled as the main cause of his death on June 25 2009.

Prosecutors argued during the six-week trial that Murray was grossly negligent in administering the propofol to help Jackson sleep as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts.

Defence attorneys said Jackson gave himself the fatal dose of propofol.

Murray faces up to four years in jail for his role in Jackson's death, and there is speculation he could end up serving his sentence with an electronic tag, because of California's chronic jail overcrowding.
