Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Doctor Conrad Murray, will be charged with manslaughter in connection with the pop star’s death. Law enforcement officials told FoxNews.com on Wednesday that Dr. Conrad Murray will be arrested and charged with manslaughter within the next two weeks.
Dr. Conrad Murray has been a person of interest to police authorities since Michael Jackson’s death on June 25. Murray has been accused of dosing the singer with the powerful anesthetic propofol hours before Michael Jackson’s death. Police have raided Murray’s home and businesses with warrants to collect evidence and medical records connected to his treatment of Michael Jackson.
Dr. Conrad Murray posted a video on YouTube on Tuesday thanking his friends and supporters. A spokesperson for Murray says he created the video for his friends and family because he is afraid to use e-mail or return phone calls due to death threats he has received.
* Update: The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office reportedly told AccessHollywood.com that no chargers are currently pending against Dr. Conrad Murray. The District Attorney’s office claims the FoxNews.com report saying Murray would shortly be charged with manslaughter in connection with Michael Jackson’s death is “completely and totally false.”
