A jury has reached a verdict around 4:15 PM EST in the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's doctor and they found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty. Dr. Murray showed little emotion when the verdict was read.

The verdict came Monday in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray is facing up to four years in the California corrections system after being convicted of killing the former pop superstar. Additional penaties include the loss of Dr. Murray's medical license and up to $10,000 worth of fines.     

During the six week trial prosecutors depicted Murray as a reckless physician who abandoned Jackson while he was under the effects of the powerful anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.

Attorneys for the Houston-based cardiologist countered that Jackson was addicted to the drug and self-administered the fatal dose when Murray left his bedroom.

Murray agreed to become Jackson's personal physician as the singer prepared for a series of comeback concerts in 2009.

Murray did not testify during the trial but previously acknowledged to police that he gave Jackson propofol and other sedatives on the morning the singer died.
