Dr. Conrad Murray to Be Charged in Michael Jackson Death; Involuntary Manslaughter Likely

by at .

After an investigation of more than seven months, the Los Angeles County D.A. is ready to charge Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson.

Look for charges to be filed as early as next week.

Members of the D.A.'s office, including the Los Angeles County District Attorney himself, Steve Cooley, have already met about filing a criminal case.

While members of the LAPD still have not met with the D.A. to present the case, the deputy D.A. assigned to the Michael Jackson investigation, David Walgren, has been working closely with LAPD detectives on the case, is familiar with the details.

He has already briefed Cooley and others in the office.

It appears Dr. Conrad Murray will stand trial and soon.

Dr. Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal physician at the time of his June 25 death, believed to have been caused by the anesthetic Propofol.

He disappeared, or at least kept an extremely low profile, for several months, only to return to work lately because dude was behind on child support.

He's already lawyered up in anticipation of the charges to come.

The most likely of those charges? Involuntary manslaughter. Murder is a hard sell, as he surely didn't mean to take the life of the King of Pop that day.

Many believe his negligence and/or shady medical practices played a role in MJ's death, however, and that's enough to warrant serious charges.
