Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray to face manslaughter charges

US prosecutors plan to charge Michael Jackson's doctor with manslaughter, lawyers in Los Angeles said last night.

The prosecutors will file a criminal complaint against Dr Conrad Murray in court rather than go through a secret grand jury, sources said.

The complaint would be the prelude to a public hearing in which a judge would consider evidence to decide if there is cause to try Dr Murray on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Murray maintains nothing he gave Jackson should have killed him.Ed Chernoff, Murray's lead attorney, said that no court appearance had been ordered or scheduled for this week.
