LOS ANGELES - More than seven months after Michael Jackson's death from an anaesthetic overdose - the pop singer's doctor will be arraigned today on a charge connected to the death, according to a person familiar with the case.
Dr Conrad Murray is set to be charged with involuntary manslaughter.
Los Angeles County district attorney's spokesperson Sandi Gibbons said she could "neither confirm nor deny" that Murray would appear in court today.
Jackson died on June 25 last year in Los Angeles.
Murray, who has a practice in Houston, came to Los Angeles last weekend and has been meeting with his team of defence attorneys.
Lead attorney Ed Chernoff said his client was ready to surrender to authorities in the event a charge was filed.
"We are prepared for whatever occurs," Chernoff said.
Murray maintains nothing he gave Jackson should have killed him. - Sapa-AP
