Los Angeles (CNN) — Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Murray served as Jackson’s personal physician as he prepared for his comeback concerts, giving him the surgical anesthetic propofol to help him sleep nearly every night for the last two months of his life, according to testimony.
Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, was caused by “acute propofol intoxication” in combination with two sedatives, the Los Angeles County coroner ruled.
The verdict followed about nine hours of jury deliberations, which began Friday morning in the downtown Los Angeles County courthouse.
