More potential jurors say they know of Michael Jackson death

About 140 prospective jurors gathered Friday for the second day of jury selection in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray's indicated they had all heard of the case of the physician accused of causing Michael Jackson's death.

The group responded with a titter when asked by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor. The judge had put the same question to 187 potential panelists on Thursday, who all said they were aware of the case they may be asked to decide.

The jury pool's response highlights the difficulty in the case surrounding the death of one of the most beloved pop stars of all time. Murray's defense attorneys had strongly argued for a sequestered jury to guard from the onslaught of media coverage, but that request was denied by the judge.

Pastor said Friday that what he was looking for was not a jury that was completely in the dark, but one that could be fair and set aside what they already know about the case. He emphasized they will need to carefully avoid outside information related to the case, particularly information online.

Seventy-two jurors have made it through the first day of screenings, and filled out lengthy questionnaires on their backgrounds and opinions to be pored over by attorneys as they select the panel to decide the involuntary manslaughter case.

Murray is accused of causing his famous patient’s death by overdose. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
