Dr Conrad Murray is released on bail in US

Michael Jackson‘s former personal physician has denied a charge of involuntary manslaughter over the singer’s death.

Dr Conrad Murray appeared at an LA court to enter his not guilty plea yesterday.

Michael‘s death on 25 June 2009 was ruled a homicide, mainly caused by the anaesthetic Propofol.

Conrad was released on $75,000 (£48,000) bail and is allowed to continue working.

But he has been barred from administering certain drugs.

Michael‘s dad Joe, mum Katherine, brothers Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Randy and sister La Toya were all in court yesterday.

The next hearing will take place on 5 April.
