Michael Jackson's doctor denies killing King of Pop in court appearance

Dr. Conrad Murray
Feb 9 2010

MICHAEL JACKSON'S doctor appeared in court last night and denied killing the King of Pop.

Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter, turned himself in at a Los Angeles court at 12.55pm local time.

A mob of reporters, photographers and Jackson fans were waiting and there was a shout of "murderer" from one onlooker.

Jackson family members, including the superstar's father and mother, Joe and Katherine, brothers Jermaine, Randy and Tito and his sister LaToya, had begun arriving as soon as the charge was filed.

"Looking for justice," was all Joe Jackson said as he walked into the courthouse, next to Los Angeles International Airport.

Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, insisted: "We'll make bail, we'll plead not guilty and we'll fight like hell."

After Murray pled not guilty, the prosecution demanded bail should be set at $300,000 (£180,000).

But the doctor's legal team objected, insisting that he was not likely to abscond.

Bail was then set at $75,000 - three times the standard amount for cases like this.

Murray was ordered to surrender his passport and taken into custody for booking at the courthouse.

During the hearing, which lasted less than half an hour, the doctor was ordered not to prescribe anesthetics or strong sedatives.

The judge told him: "I do not want you sedating people."

It also emerged that the medical authorities are seeking to have Murray's licence to practise revoked.

Murray, 56, has been the focus of an intensive inquiry since Jackson's death last June at the age of 50 at his rented Los Angeles mansion.

The doctor, who had been taken on as Jackson's personal physician to prepare for his comeback concerts in London, was the last person to see the star alive.

He has admitted that he administered the hospital anaesthetic propofol and other sedatives as Jackson, a chronic insomniac, struggled to sleep.

But he maintains nothing which he gave the singer should have killed him.

Murray, a heart specialist with practices in Texas, faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

He is accused in the charge of acting "unlawfully and without malice" in bringing about Jackson's death.
