Michael Jackson Death Trial Soon To Wrap Up

On Tuesday closing arguments in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial were kicked off, signaling the beginning of the end for the long running trial. Katherine Jackson, MJ's mother, and his three kids claim that AEG Live is responsible for Jacko's death and should pay restitution.

According to ABC News, Katherine's attorney argued that AEG's appointment of Conrad Murray as MJ's doctor led to the pop star's death:

"The evidence is clear that Michael Jackson was on a decline for 60 days as written in internal emails that AEG did nothing in supervising Dr. Murray or taking action to stop that."

AEG, meanwhile, says that MJ was responsible for hiring Murray, and that they simply advanced Jackson the money to pay the doctor with.

The jury is responsible for determining both whether AEG was at fault, and, if so, to what extent.
