According to the criminal complaint, the D.A. alleges Dr. Murray “did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson … in the commission of an unlawful act, not a felony; and in the commission of a lawful act which might have produced death, in an unlawful manner, and without due caution and circumspection.”
Dr. Murray will be arraigned today at 1:30 PM. As we first reported, he will plead not guilty.
Dr. Murray is expected to show up at around 1:00 PM, accompanied by his lawyers and a bail bondsman. Bail should be set at $25,000.
Dr. Murray administered Propofol to Jackson just before he died, and the L.A. County Coroner’s Office has determined Jackson died as a result of acute Propofol intoxication.
If convicted, Dr. Murray faces a maximum of four years in prison.
