Jury in Conrad Murray trial ends first day of deliberations

[Updated 7:15 p.m. ET] The jury in the Dr. Conrad Murray trial has ended deliberations for the day without reaching a verdict.

[Posted 4:03 p.m. ET] The mother of the late pop icon Michael Jackson has been asked to return to a Los Angeles County courthouse, where a jury is deliberating the case against the physician charged in the death of her son, according to a source close to her.

It was not immediately clear from the source why Katherine Jackson was asked to return to the building.

Dr. Conrad Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson. Closing arguments in the case ended Thursday.

    There is no proof that Mrs. J. was "called back" to the courthouse or neighborhood! The media has lost its mind.

    There is NO PROOF or reasonable proof that Murray is guilty of manslaughter. Perhaps stupidity, but not for deliberately killing Michael "child molester" Jackson.

      @ Bayousara: Did you know that Michael was acquitted of all charges? Did you know that the father of that kid confessed that it was a lie? And so did the kid, now that he's older. Do your homework before you start spouting off, and while you're at it, wipe the foam from your mouth.

      Jackson was NOT acquitted of all charges. He settled there for guilty in my mind. If I was truly innocent I would fight tooth and nail to prove it.

      @ Bayousara, you're clearly stupid or ignorant, because Murray is being charged with INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER, not murder. He didn't keep records. He bought 4 gallons of Propofol AND gave it to someone without proper monitoring.

      THAT, Bayousara, is utter negligence that killed MJ.

      Hey JV – you say he was guilty?? So what do you think about the parents of the so-called victim – first off, if you even so much as thought he was a molester, you'd NEVER leave your kids with him unless you didn't care. Doesn't help that it was proven the mother had done this before and tried to scam money from someone else this same way. Second, you say he's guilty because he paid him? I don't know ANY parent who would accept cash for touching their child – they (and myself included) would fight to the end til the "molester" burned in hell. If someone touched my child there would be NO amount that could settle it. Money would mean nothing unless IT DIDN"T HAPPEN AND THAT WAS THE MOTIVE FROM THE START. THAT, my friend, shows guilt, but not on Michael's part. Not to mention the kid admitted it too. Facts help!
      Emma – I agree!
      Kristel – A good parent wouldn't leave their kid to begin with if there was even a doubt they were in danger. The only thing the world lost was a great artist. And Murray is to blame.
      RIP Michael.

    Nobody is claiming the Murray deliberately killed Michael....that is why it is called (in voluntary) manslaughter!
    But he is definately guilty of that!!!!

    Kristal you have not been up to date on the molestation charges against Michael. The father of the little boy who first accused him, commited suicide and the boy admitted they were false accusatins encouraged by the father. Lets put that to rest and avoid making more public lies grow! He was dismissed of all charges on the second case after a thourough investigation...your comments are without merit.

    This apparent uncertainty is clearer that Dr conrad may appear very innocent in the truer sense-a volition of service as required by micheal himself. The death is voiceless but facts wil set the day free for conrad.

    AEG snuffed Jackson to recoup insurance money
    for tour about to be cancelled because
    50 year old drug addict could not even make it thru rehersal.
    Murray is fall guy.
    If tour was cancelled and Jackson alive
    Jackson would be held responsible for money invested into tour
    Jackson living in mansion is actually FLAT BROKE !!
    Jackson needed the money from this tour BADLY !

      You are a fool. I see why you have nothing better to do than make idiot comments on here. Clearly this is all your tiny brain can handle. Guessing your age as 15 is a stretch – 5 would be more accurate. Rod said it well – get a life.

    Michael Jackson was found NOT GUILTY of being a child molester, as you say. Now you want to put your two cents in about Conrad Murray saying their is NO PROOF? Conrad Murray is a physician and was responsible for looking after his patient (which he was not doing because he was on the phone with his 10 girlfriends). He is not guilty of 1st degree murder, but i feel manslaughter is justified in this situation.
