LOS ANGELES (AFP) – A judge ordered Michael Jackson’s personal doctor to stand trial on involuntary manslaughter charges for allegedly killing the singer with an overdose of powerful sedatives.


Conrad Murray denied the charges, saying he was just treating the pop icon for insomnia when he died in June 2009.

Murray also had his license to practice medicine in California suspended.


The doctor will be arraigned on January 25, the Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled after six days of pre-trial hearings in which evidence was presented that Murray tried to cover up evidence of drugs he gave the star immediately before his death.
