Not long after Dr. Conrady Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter today, those close to Michaej Jackson - whose death the physician is suspected to have been responsible for - reacted in outrage.
"He's a monster," said MJ's mother, Katherine (pictured), after the arraignment.
Brian Oxman, the family's veteran lawyer for Jackson's father Joseph, was equally disgusted with the judge's decision.
"This charge is a slap on the wrist," he said. "There's great disappointment here. [Conrad Murray] should've been charged with a higher degree of responsibility. What he did was reckless. It was a disregard for human life."
Michael's sister Latoya also chimed in, putting everything in a disturbing context:
“Michael was murdered and although he died at the hands of Dr. Conrad Murray, I believe Dr. Murray was a part of a much larger plan. There are other individuals involved and I will not rest and I will continue to fight until all of the proper individuals are brought forth and justice is served."
