Dr. Conrad Murray – Michael Jackson’s personal physician– will be charged with manslaughter within the next two weeks, according to a new report.
FOXNews.com quotes a law enforcement source as saying that Dr. Murray could be arrested as soon as next Wednesday — but investigators have decided to execute one more search warrant, likely at a Los Angeles pharmacy, next week in an attempt to gather more evidence against him. The arrest is now expected the following week.
In addition, FOXNews.com reports that Jackson’s longtime friend and dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, will be charged with medical malpractice. FOX says Klein will not be arrested for at least another two weeks, as investigators are still building a case against him.
Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, is denying the story, telling RadarOnline.com: “The reports regarding Dr. Conrad Murray being charged with manslaughter are false. The case has not been handed over to the District Attorney and it’s still an ongoing investigation. We don’t know what charges- if any – Dr. Conrad Murray will be facing.”
Sources tell RadarOnline.com the case is expected to be turned over to the District Attorney’s office within the next two weeks.
Jackson died of cardiac arrest on June 25 in his rented mansion in Holmby Hills., California. Results of an autopsy have not been made public, but it is widely believed that Murray had given Jackson the intravenous anesthetic propofol to help him sleep just hours before his death.
