Conrad Murray, doctor of the late Michael Jackson, will stand trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter this month, a judge ruled Tuesday. The case could offer insight on legal gray areas.
Michael Jackson died a year ago from a physician-administered anesthetic. More than 20,000 people die each year from prescription-drug overdoses, some of whom get drugs from more than one doctor.
Conrad Murray, the doctor accused of involuntary manslaughter in the Michael Jackson death, returned to court Monday. A judge is deciding whether he can practice medicine as he awaits trial.
