LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors will seek an involuntary manslaughter indictment against Michael Jackson’s doctor for the pop star’s death, according to the Associated Press.

A law enforcement source says Dr. Conrad Murray will be prosecuted on a theory of gross negligence. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation remains open.

The district attorney’s office is waiting for the Los Angeles police to turn over the case before presenting it to a grand jury. Jackson died at his Los Angeles home in June while under Murray’s care as the singer prepared for an ambitious concert schedule.

A Murray spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Plans to seek the indictment were first reported by TMZ.com.
