Murray verdict watch continues

Monday, November 7, 2011 - 12:40pm

Jurors are back for day two of deliberations in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Murray is accused of causing Michael Jackson's death with the powerful anesthetic Propofol.

They are considering one count of involuntary manslaughter, which carries a maximum penalty of four years in prison.

If he is convicted Dr. Murray will also lose his medical license.

The jurors are looking over hundreds of pieces of evidence and 22 days of testimony from witnesses.

The jury is a cross section of the community.

There is a school bus driver, a postal worker, a paralegal and a professor among the pool.

They will have to decide if Dr. Murray was criminally negligent in his care of Michael Jackson or if the defense's theory that Jackson gave himself the fatal dose of Propofol is enough for an acquittal.
