Los Angeles, California

Like courtroom drama scenes commonly shot at next-door Hollywood and surrounding areas, a real-life courtroom trial is now being shown live at the Los Angeles Superior Court in downtown LA.

Online you can catch the live blow-by-blow action at abcnews.com. It is also being shown live on KTLA Channel 5 in the LA Area.

Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s cardiologist at the time of his untimely death in the summer of 2009 pleaded not guilty on the case of The People v Conrad Robert Murray.

Dr. Murray is being charged and tried with the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop.


Live Trial: Michael Jackson's Voice Slurred on Tape

O.J. Simpson Trial All Over Again

As they say and just like in the O.J Simpson Trial, the circus has again come to town and is now currently showing. And the way this particular trial is starting, this one is going to be a real circus.

Dr. Murray, the personal doctor with Michael at his deathbed has been in the limelight for some time now. And the general public will get to watch and listen to more of the gory details, especially in a trial such as what he is being charged of and never mind that it involves MJ himself.

The trial and the testimonies started September 27 as arguments about the pop singer's health and his doctor's knowledge of MJ’s supposed drug abuse.

The first day of trial was attended by members of the Jackson family while his friends, fans and people who know him watch and follow it live online and on television.

Propofol

As anticipated, lawyers from both sides will zero on in the now familiar drug called propofol, which Dr. Murray was said to be administering to the singer. It is a very powerful drug only intended for hospital use.

On the onset of the trial, concentration was on Dr. Murray, his relationship with the singer and how and when and to what extent was that relationship.

Dr. Murray’s contract is also discussed and is going to be dissected. His service has been contracted for the amount of US $ 150,000 a month as he will accompany the singer on his rehearsals and on the This Is It comeback tour of the King of Pop.

Michael, 50 at the time, didn't get to open up a single show as paramedics were suddenly called to his home in Los Angeles. Apparently Michael was found unconscious, CPR had been performed on him, and he was then rushed to the nearby UCLA Medical Center, where he was ultimately pronounced dead and where paparazzis were waiting for him.

If convicted, Dr. Murray will face jail time.

Until then, we can all follow the trial online and on TV.

      I did not want to watch the trial of Conrad Murray, but the television was on it yesterday. As soon as the death photo flashed on the screen, I immediately turned my head and wanted to walk out. Like, I'm sorry, I don't know if it's just me, but I think showing the death photo is disrespectful. That's traumatic for his family and I'm pretty sure a lot of them are still dealing with his death. The flashing of that photo in the courtroom, I'm sure, made them relive the pain that they began to feel starting on June 25.

      I don't need to watch the trial to find out if the doctor is guilty. I know he is. He looks as though he has something to hide.
