He’s agreed to surrender, the infighting has ceased and Conrad Murray will be arraigned later today.
The doctor suspected of recklessly injecting Michael Jackson with sedatives is expected to plead not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter.
According to TMZ sources, he will arrive at the courthouse at approximately 1 p.m. PST, with the hearing scheduled for a half hour later. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department will send along more deputies than usual, out of crowd control and safety concerns.
Bail will likely be set at $25,000.
Once this is paid and the arraignment concludes, Dr. Murray will leave the city and head to either to Las Vegas or Houston.
If any of these details change, we’ll let you know. But this is the first step in what’s likely to become a circus of a trial. THG will be there every step of the way.
** UPDATE: Murray has officially been charged. 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.”
