The involuntary manslaughter trial against Conrad Murray officially is underway. Prosecutors are trying to prove that the doctor’s recklessness in using the surgical anesthetic propofol as a sleeping aid led to Michael Jackson’s June 2009 death.
As the state carefully lays out its case to jurors, Murray faces a possible four-year sentence in a California prison and the loss of his medical license.
Will their opening arguments lay the groundwork for a Conrad Murray conviction? Watch and offer your take.
