Jackson died on June 25, 2009 under the care of Dr. Murray who was paid $150,000 a month by Jackson to be his exclusive personal physician.

The court heard how Murray protected his salary over and above the care of Jackson and despite being asked unreasonable medical requests by Jackson he made decisions that affected the health of the singer.

On the day Jackson died, Murray took 20 minutes to call an ambulance and prior to that incorrectly did CPR on the singer contributing to his death. Had he called 911 immediately the court heard how Jackson would probably still be alive today.

The sentence will be handed down later.

Jurors now have to wait 90 days under California law before selling their story.
