Murray Trial Closing Arguments Begin

Thursday, November 3, 2011 - 3:00pm

Attorneys sum up their cases for the jury today.

The involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray could soon be in the hands of the jury.

Both sides rested their cases on Tuesday, then took a day off to prepare for closing arguments after Dr. Murray told the judge he would not take the stand in his own defense.

Attorneys will offer their summation this afternoon.

The prosecution contends that Murray was negligent in his care of the pop star and is criminally responsible for Jackson's death.

Murray's defense team claims that Michael Jackson administered his own fatal overdose.

The jury will consider one count of involuntary manslaughter, meaning they don't have to decide if Conrad Murray meant to kill Michael Jackson, only whether or not there is enough evidence to find him criminally negligent.
