, LOS ANGELES, Nov – Michael Jackson’s sister La Toya tweeted her brother was watching on Monday inside the US courtroom, where jurors were to give their verdict in the manslaughter trial of the late pop singer’s doctor.
“Michael’s spirit will be with us in the court room and he will make sure the right verdict is made,” she tweeted about 40 minutes before the verdict against medic Conrad Murray was due to be read out in Los Angeles.
About an hour earlier, shortly after a two-hour warning was issued for family and others to return to hear to the downtown court, she had tweeted “Verdict is FINALLY IN!!! I’m on my way! I’m shaking uncontrollably!”
Murray faces up to four years in jail and could be banned from practicing medicine if convicted of Jackson’s death from an overdose of propofol on June 25, 2009.
