Conrad Murray

He may be out of prison already, but that’s not stopping Conrad Murray pushing forward with his appeal over his conviction for manslaughter for causing the death of Michael Jackson in 2009 through negligent treatment.

Murray’s legal team have raised various arguments in the ex-doc’s bid to overturn his conviction, including claims the judge overseeing the original trial was wrong to stop the defence from bringing certain bits of evidence to the jury.

Prosecutors in the case have already hit back at all of Team Murray’s arguments, and whether or not an appeal will be allowed to proceed will now be discussed in court early next year. Initial arguments are set to be presented on 9 Jan.

As previously reported, Murray was released in October after serving nearly two years in jail. He continues to proclaim his innocence, insisting that Jackson himself must have injected the shot of the drug propofol that killed him.
