Conrad Murray is sitting in prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Yet this doctor somehow thinks he’s the one who can fix the ongoing Jackson family saga, which has centered around contention over the late singer’s will and the whereabouts of his mother, Katherine Jackson, for nearly two weeks now.
Katherine is now back at home with her grandchildren, but even young Prince Jackson is suspicious over why she was taken by other relatives in the first place.
“I’ve been told that she has a desire to speak with me before she departs thisMore >
The L.A. County D.A. is far from pleased that Dr. Conrad Murray wants judge to spring him from jail while he appeals his conviction for involuntary manslaughter.
Prosecutors assert that Murray, who was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison for his role in in the death of Michael Jackson, is a danger to society.
According to court documents, the D.A.’s office says Murray’s shown zero remorse for “reckless and criminal conduct that directly caused Michael Jackson’s death.”
In other words, the D.A. says Murray just doesn’t get it, a key point of their argument, as they say he couldMore >
Following the maximum four-year sentence handed down on him this week, Dr. Conrad Murray has filed an appeal to challenge his conviction for manslaughter.
Murray, as you almost know, was implicated in the death of Michael Jackson and was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter this fall after an exhaustive case.
The embattled physician filed the document in pro per, which means he’s representing himself instead of using a lawyer. In his trial, he used multiple lawyers.
On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm’sMore >
In an interview conducted shortly before he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray says he doesn’t feel guilty about Michael Jackson dying.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” the cardiologist insists.
The Today Show aired portions of an intense sit-down interview with Murray that was conducted before the guilty verdict was reached by a jury earlier this week.
In it, he completely contradicts what he told police.
During the interview, Murray says he put Jackson to sleep that fateful day, then left the room to talk on the phone,More >
La Toya Jackson is irate over the documentary featuring Dr. Conrad Murray to air on MSNBC. She’s demanding it be pulled out of respect for her brother Michael.
The late pop singer’s sister says the controversial documentary, which will air tomorrow, essentially gives “a murderer and convicted felon … celebrity status.”
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, not murder, but MJ’s estate and fans are still understandably upset about the Conrad Murray documentary.
La Toya fired off a letter to MSNBC, claiming it’s outrageous that Michael cannot defend himself against Murray’sMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray is under suicide watch behind bars, according to reports. He was taken into custody Monday after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
The cardiologist was found guilty in the trial stemming from the death of Michael Jackson. After the Conrad Murray verdict was read, he was denied bail.
Law enforcement officials tells the Los Angeles Times that they are taking no chances and will ensure Murray does not take his own life at L.A. County Jail.
In addition, Dr. Murray is a “keep away inmate,” meaning jail officials will take precautions to keep him safe, includingMore >
Just hours before closing arguments in Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, a documentary about the embattled physician is being shopped to networks.
Murray, who faces up to four years in prison in the death of Michael Jackson, has been a part of filming the documentary since being charged earlier this year.
Dr. Murray, as we know, has decided not to take the stand at his trial, but has given long in depth interviews to the film crew … for whatever that’s worth.
“This project has been in the works since Murray’s arrest,” says a source. “It was originally conceived to helpMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray is praying for the prosecution.
Why? The doc didn’t really get into that. But he is!
Murray, who has taken a pounding in court these last few weeks, made the surprising statement last night, leaving a restaurant in Santa Monica.
“I would like to pray for the prosecutor, his associates, and his expert witness,” the late Michael Jackson’s former physician told a photographer.
Murray did not indicate whether it’s because he prays for everyone, because that’s just the kind of guy he is, or due to recent events in his trial.
Maybe Murray means he’s praying because he believesMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray’s attorneys are trying to change defendant’s defense in his involuntary manslaughter trial, telling jurors Michael Jackson had much more than two minutes alone self-administer a fatal dose of Propofol June 25, 2009.
By claiming this, they are contradicting Murray’s own statement.
Murray’s attorney J. Michael Flanagan suggested that the two-minute window Murray said he left the star alone for that morning wasn’t accurate after all.
Prosecutors have lambasted the idea that MJ could have woken up, grabbed a bottle of Propofol and injected it into the port in his leg in justMore >
Sade Anding, Nicole Alvarez, Michelle Bella & Stacey Ruggles: The Women of Dr. Conrad Murray Testify!
Play on, player.
That was our main takeaway from day seven of the Conrad Murray trial. How do you even find time to practice medicine when you’re juggling that many chicks?
Come to think of it, he didn’t really practice it very well, as Michael Jackson found out the hard way. ALLEGEDLY. According to prosecutors. Anyway, moving on …
Murray’s shady connections to Sade Anding, Nicole Alvarez, Michelle Bella and Stacey Ruggles don’t prove anything, but you have to wonder what a jury thought.
Let’s break down what each had to say about Conrad:

Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children of the late Michael Jackson, have decided to instill a self-imposed boycott of Dr. Conrad Murray’s trial.
The physician, accused of involuntary manslaughter, faces a long prison term if convicted. The trial, which began last week, is expected to last weeks.
Sources say that for the kids, especially Prince and Paris, rehashing the details of how Michael died is just too hard, and they’re trying to tune it out.
Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother and the kids’ guardian, is said to be relieved that kids aren’t more curious and desperate to payMore >
In day two of the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial, Michael Jackson’s personal assistant Michael Amir Williams took the stand to describe panicked voicemail Murray left on Williams’ phone the day Jackson died.
The key points from Williams’ testimony:
- Jackson’s final rehearsal, on June 24, 2009, was “amazing.”
- The following day, Williams received a panicked message from Murray at 12:13 p.m. saying, “call me right away.” Murray told Williams that MJ had some sort of “bad reaction” and to “get somebody here immediately.”
- Williams arrived to see MJ on a gurney and Murray “frantic.”
In his opening statement in the the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, attorney Ed Chernoff told the jury Michael Jackson killed himself.
Earlier, prosecutor David Walgren delivered the state’s opening argument, using a stark visual of what appears to be Jackson’s lifeless body on a gurney.
Below are summaries of the opening arguments laid out by both sides:
L.A. County D.A.’s office prosecutors argued this morning that …
- Michael Jackson fully trusted Dr. Conrad Murray with his life
- The cause of death was an overdose of Propofol, administered by Murray
- Murray repeatedly
Passionate Michael Jackson fans who wish to witness the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray have been told to get their asses in gear or be banned for good after an incident yesterday in which a number of MJ supporters acted out.
Fans were “staring down Murray and giving him dirty looks,” reports say.
These weren’t furtive glances, either. Spectators were staring so intensely at Dr. Murray it prompted the deputy to remove all spectators from the room.
Despite this distraction, Judge Michael Pastor has not issued any bans on public viewing of the trial … yet. He has warned fans to shape up or getMore >
Prosecutors trying to convict Dr. Conrad Murray of involuntary manslaughter want to make sure the trial does not become about Michael Jackson’s personal life.
In particular, they want the judge to disallow all testimony related to allegations of Michael Jackson molesting children, and to block a potentially key witness.
Steve Robel, a key Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s investigator in MJ’s 2005 molestation trial, is on the witness list compiled by Dr. Conrad Murray’s team.
Dr. Murray’s trial is scheduled to get underway next month.
Prosecutors want all references to molestation barredMore >
