The manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor is moving rapidly toward one that likely will be televised. Dr. Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the pop superstar’s 2009 death.


Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor says he’s inclined to allow TV coverage of the trial, set to begin March 28. He’ll hear both side’s views on that and other issues at a Feb. 7 hearing. A spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office says the office has a policy of not opposing cameras in court. Murray is accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic and other sedatives. If convicted, Murray could face a maximum of four years in
prison.
