Conrad Murray Trial: A Timeline of Justice for Michael Jackson (Slideshow)
Michael Jackson's physician Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter on Nov. 7 for his role in the singer's death. A jury found that Murray's use of propofol to treat Jackson's insomnia led to the singer's demise. Click through the slideshow to see how it all played out.
Jackson's security guard, Alberto Alvarez, testified that Murray instructed him to stash drugs -- including propofol -- before calling 911.
Dr. Richelle Cooper, the attending ER physician at UCLA Medical Center when Jackson was brought in, told the court that Murray neglected to mention propofol when listing the drugs that Jackson had been given. Murray admitted to giving Jackson propofol in the hours before his death in a police interview two days after the singer died.
A startling autopsy photo of an emaciated Jackson was shown in court.
Several of Murray's lady friends were called to testify, including Nicole Alvarez, his current girlfriend and mother of his 7th child. Propofol was shipped to Alvarez's home address.
Dr. Steven Shafer, a key witness for the prosecution, told jurors that Murray had committed 17 different egregious deviations from the standard of care while treating Jackson, asserting that propofol should never be given in a home setting.
Houston cocktail waitress Sade Anding, yet another of Murray's lady friends, told the court that she had spoken to the doctor over the phone in the hours leading up to Jackson's death -- at a time when he should have been monitoring the singer.
Dr. Paul White, a key defense witness, argued that Jackson self-administered the fatal dose of propofol; prosecutor David Walgren accused White of peddling "junk science" to the court.
