Closing arguments have begun at the involuntary manslaughter case of Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray today (03.11.11).

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren summed up by telling jurors it was the actions of the doctor that led to the death of Michael from an overdose of anaesthetic Propofol on June 25, 2009.

He told the court: "The evidence in this case is abundantly clear - that Conrad Murray caused the death of Michael Jackson, that Conrad Murray left Prince, Paris and Blanket without a father.

He added that doctors had an obligation to say no when a patient asked them to do something which would be harmful to them, referring to the fact Michael asked for the medicine as a result of his inability to sleep.

Walgren said: "Conrad Murray sought payment for services rendered, the services rendered being the provision of Propofol. Michael Jackson trusted Conrad Murray. But Conrad Murray corrupted that relationship, and for that Michael Jackson paid with his life."

The seven man and five woman jury were told by Superior Court judge Michael Pastor - in front of Michael's family, including his mother Katherine and sister La Toya - they must convict the physician if they believe he either committed a legal act by giving the anaesthetic as a licensed doctor but did so in a criminally negligent way, or if he failed to perform his legal duty as Michael's doctor.

They must agree unanimously on one theory or the other, and must also keep in mind the medical experts who gave opposing testimony about what led to his death.

The jury can also consider testimony which claimed Dr. Murray was an "attentive, informative and compassionate physician".

Dr. Murray pleads not guilty to the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson and may face four years in prison if he is found guilty.

to the best of my knowledge, criminals are forbidden from profiting from the crimes committed. the funds should go to the children. ill check it out and get back to all. as for the fragrance, if that is what the children have to do for monies to support them, it is their right to so do.it is little consulation to received a check at the end of they rather than a kiss and hug from daddy!!!

If the jury deliberates for over 2 hours it will mean they are looking at 'all' the paperwork (it will have 2 be seen by the judge) they are taking everything n2 consideration. Of course they would want to return quicker but then there would be more arguments. But, I have been a juror & in one case (serious) we delebriated for only 1 hour & gave a ...... verdict. This case with the measures of medication/statements/photos/letters and so on 'could' take over the w/e. This is an open and shut case of GUILTY - if not, then something is seriously amiss. The only winner is Murray whatever the verdict, as his greed will have no bounds but watch out for the 'new' accusations, caus an evil sod like M will surely have enemies, & like him will do/say a'thing for a quick buck.
