LOS ANGELES -- A new group of 140 prospective jurors reported for duty Thursday in the case of Michael Jackson's doctor, and all them indicated they know about the involuntary manslaughter case against him.
Panelists who said they can serve on a two-month trial are filling out questionnaires. Those who express strong opinions about Dr. Conrad Murray's guilt or innocence could be dismissed for cause before they reach the jury box.
Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor, who has already screened 340 prospects and cleared 147 of those for availability, summoned the third panel of potential jurors to make sure there will be enough people to choose from when in-depth questioning begins next month. Ultimately, 12 jurors and six alternates will be chosen.
