Jury to Resume Deliberations in Conrad Murray Trial

David McNew-Pool/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The jury in Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial will resume deliberations Monday in Los Angeles.  The jurors ended their first day of deliberations on Friday without reaching a verdict.

Two former Michael Jackson bodyguards say the late pop star would not have wanted his personal physician to be on trial.

Javon Beard argues, "There's no way in hell that Dr. Conrad wanted to kill Mr. Jackson -- you know, why would he kill his paycheck?"

Another former Jackson bodyguard, Bill Whitfield, says of the entertainer, "He would never step into another courtroom again -- this trial brought him back into the courtroom -- his character was back into question."

Murray is accused of giving Jackson a fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol in 2009.  He has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
