Michael Jackson Death: Conrad Murray Found Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter

David McNew-Pool/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

The prosecution triumphed after six weeks of impassioned arguments and witness testimonies.

Murray did not flinch and showed no emotion as the verdict was read.

The Jackson family arrived at the courthouse an hour before the reading of the verdict, led by parents Joe and Katherine Jackson. Randy, LaToya, Rebbie, Jermaine and Jermaine's wife were all in court. Family friends Rick and Kathy Hilton were also in attendance.

Monday was the second day of deliberations. The jury deliberated for about six hours on Friday and for less than three hours Monday before reaching a decision.

Murray was accused of causing the singer's death by administering the powerful anesthetic propofol and not properly supervising his patient or taking proper steps after Jackson stopped breathing.

Murray contended that Jackson gave himself the fatal dose while the doctor was out of the room.

Jurors listened to 49 witnesses over 22 days of testimony. Murray did not testify.
