Michael Jackson's doctor will face a criminal trial for involuntary manslaughter, it has been ruled.
Judge Michael Pastor said today there is sufficient evidence to warrant a case against Dr Conrad Murray following this week's preliminary hearing.
Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician who was attending to Michael Jackson on the day of the pop star's death, entered a plea of not guilty to involuntary manslaughter Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
"Your honor, I am an innocent man," Murray said, adding, "Therefore, I plead not guilty," after being interrupted by Judge Michael Pastor.
A Los Angeles judge on Monday postponed the trial of Michael Jackson's personal physician until September at the request of defense, so as to allow for more time to fully prepare. Judge Michael Pastor made the ruling at the request of defense attorneys representing Dr. Conrad Murray.
