Conrad MurrayConrad Murray, the physician accused of injecting Michael Jackson with a lethal amount of sedatives, was ordered to stand trial on a count of involuntary manslaughter. According to TMZ, Judge Michael Pastor then ordered the suspension of Murray's license as a condition to the doctor's bail.

E! Online reports that Murray has pleaded not guilty to the charge. This ruling comes only six days after more than 20 prosecution witnesses testified that Murray violated his duties as a medical professional by injecting Jackson with a surgical-grade anesthetic then failing to properly monitor him to see the effects of the drug.

One of Jackson's bodyguards, Alberto Alvarez, testified at the preliminary hearing against Murray, confirming that the doctor demonstrated "an extreme deviation from the standard of care" by administering the amounts of anesthetic he did to Jackson, then concealing the evidence and not thoroughly attempting to resuscitate the King of Pop.
