(Newser) – Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty after being charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson today. The singer's parents, Joe and Katherine, and several of his brothers were in court in Los Angeles. Prosecutors allege Murray killed the pop legend "unlawfully, and without malice," by administering the drug Propofol. If convicted, Murray faces a maximum of 4 years in prison, the Los Angeles Times reports.
