For one, Jackson’s personal physician — Dr. Conrad Murray – was charged with involuntary manslaughter of the pop icon in November 2011.

Testimony during the trial showed that Murray had regularly administered propofol to the singer — the drug which, in the end, played a key role in Jackson’s death when it was combined with other medications in his system.

Murray was sentenced to four years in prison.
