Michael Jackson's Children to Be Witnesses at Trial
Michael Jackson's young children and family members including mother Katherine and sister Janet Jackson are set to be called as witnesses at Dr. Conrad Murray's upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial, according to a U.S. report. The physician stands accused of administering the powerful dose of anesthetic Propofol which led to the King of Pop's death in June 2009.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and is due to stand trial in May, and a document, obtained by TMZ, has revealed new details about proceedings. In the papers, more than 100 potential witnesses are listed, including the "Thriller" icon's three children 14-year-old Prince Michael, 13-year-old Paris, and 9-year-old Blanket.
Other family members set to take the stand include Jackson's dad Joe, and siblings Jackie Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, La Toya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and Tito Jackson.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor is still searching for impartial jurors to hear the case, and the legal paper also reveals potential jurors face extensive quizzing of their opinions about Jackson, celebrities and medication before being appointed.
