A jury has reached a verdict in the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's doctor.

Court officials say it will be read about 1 p.m. PST. The verdict came Monday in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Prosecutors depicted Murray as a reckless physician who abandoned Jackson while he was under the effects of the powerful
anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.

Attorneys for the Houston-based cardiologist countered that
Jackson was addicted to the drug and self-administered the fatal
dose when Murray left his bedroom.

Murray agreed to become Jackson's personal physician as the
singer prepared for a series of comeback concerts in 2009.

Murray did not testify during the trial but previously acknowledged to police that he gave Jackson propofol and other sedatives on the morning the singer died.
