Manslaughter Hearing Begins For Michael Jackson’s Doctor

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s personal assistant is testifying in Los Angeles about a chaotic scene at the singer’s rented mansion and a hospital on the day that he died.

Prosecutors questioned Michael Amir Williams on Tuesday about a brief conversation he had with Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.

Williams describes Murray calling him and frantically asking him to get help from bodyguards for the singer, who was in a bedroom. Prosecutors contended earlier in the preliminary hearing that Jackson was already dead.

Williams says Murray told him the singer had a “bad reaction” and that help was immediately needed, but that the doctor didn’t ask him to call 911.

Williams says it was “chaos” at the mansion and the hospital, with crowds gathering.

Jackson’s mother, Katherine, and sister LaToya and brother Jackie are attending the hearing.

    So called Doctor Murray should get more than 4yrs in prison, what is wrong with the court system its obvious for what he did to a innocent, kind, giving, caring, and loving man. So called doctor should be charged with 2nd degree murder this is ridiculous. JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL AND HIS WHOLE FAMILY.
