“LOS ANGELES—A jury convicted Michael Jackson’s personal physician on Monday of killing the pop singer in 2009 with an overdose of a powerful surgical anesthetic the doctor gave him to sleep.

After a trial of nearly six weeks, it took barely more than a day of deliberation for the seven-man, five-woman jury to decide that the doctor, Conrad Murray, was guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Dr. Murray appeared impassive as a court officer read the verdict. Jackson fans outside the courthouse cheered and waved signs as word reached them.

Judge Michael Pastor of Los Angeles Superior Court ordered Dr. Murray held without bail until a sentencing hearing Nov. 29.

“This is a crime in which the end result was the death of a human being,” Judge Pastor said. “Public safety demands that he be remanded.” Sheriff’s deputies immediately handcuffed the doctor. . .” –WSJ
