LOS ANGELES (AP) - Michael Jackson’s personal physician returns to court Friday for in-person questioning of potential jurors in his involuntary manslaughter trial.

The session comes two weeks after a pool of 145 people was created to possibly hear the case against Dr. Conrad Murray. Prosecutors and defense attorneys have been going through the group’s responses to a 30-page questionnaire and dismissing some of the group if their answers indicated certain biases.

The judge has not revealed how many people have been dismissed. Attorneys will have limited time to question prospective jurors.

Opening statements are scheduled to begin on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Murray has pleaded not guilty. Authorities contend he gave the singer a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol in the bedroom of the singer’s rented mansion on June 25, 2009.
