"Dr. Murray is upbeat and eager to return to his patients in Houston," she said.

While Murray was supposed to be arraigned on February 5, the LAPD and the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office became at odds over how the doctor would surrender. The LAPD had wanted to walk Murray into the courthouse in handcuffs, per a source close to the situation. The doctor's lawyer Michael Flanagan became incensed that his client was being used as a pawn in the struggle between the two offices, an insider says.


It is expected that Murray will be charged with involuntary manslaughter. He is also expected to post the $25,000 bail customary for the charge before heading back to his Houston medical practice directly after.
