LOS ANGELES – A law enforcement official says prosecutors plan to charge Michael Jackson’s doctor with manslaughter rather than take the case to a grand jury.

 

The official told The Associated Press last Tuesday that prosecutors will file a criminal complaint against Dr. Conrad Murray in court rather than go through a secret grand jury.

The person is not authorized to speak publicly about the case and only spoke on condition of anonymity.

 

The complaint would be the prelude to a public hearing in which a judge would weigh testimony from witnesses to decide if there is probable cause to try him on an involuntary manslaughter charge.

 

Jackson died June 25 from an anesthetic overdose. Murray maintains nothing he gave Jackson should have killed him.
