Conrad Murray Charged in Michael Jackson Death

2/8/2010 4:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray has just been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Conrad Murray

According to the criminal complaint, the D.A. alleges Dr. Murray "did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson ... in the commission of an unlawful act, not a felony; and in the commission of a lawful act which might have produced death, in an unlawful manner, and without due caution and circumspection."

Dr. Murray will be arraigned today at 1:30 PM. As we first reported, he will plead not guilty.

Dr. Murray is expected to show up at around 1:00 PM, accompanied by his lawyers and a bail bondsman. Bail should be set at $25,000.

Dr. Murray administered Propofol to Jackson just before he died, and the L.A. County Coroner's Office has determined Jackson died as a result of acute Propofol intoxication.

If convicted, Dr. Murray faces a maximum of four years in prison.

For MJ    

Conrad Murray you should NOT have the luxury of being able to walk around a FREE LIVING man! You should be cowered in the corner waiting for a HIT MAN to take your LOSER ass out!

THEY BETTER CUFF HIM! After all they did it to Michael Jackson. He turned himself in too, and still he was unjustly cuffed and rough handled by the powers that be.

Why no shackles like MJ was shackled the moment he surrendered.

Notice it says WITHOUT MALICE. This is what will get Murray off with less than four years.

Why the need to see someone in handcuffs? It's very dehumanizing. But I do think they should only be used on hard core escaped criminals.

As I do believe this guy has to be held responsible for agreeing to do this stupid thing that Michael requested, in the end, the fault of Michael Jackson's death is Michael Jackson. He was an idiot for doing that kind of sh*t in the first place and even more when he had children to raise. This is coming from a Michael Jackson fan, but come on, denial aint just a river in egypt people. MICHAEL IS TO BLAME TO.
