Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor ordered Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, to stand trial for the involuntary manslaughter of the king of pop.

Prosecutors allege Murray, 57, gave Jackson a lethal dose of sedatives, which led to Jackson’s death in June 2009. Murray has pleaded not guilty by claiming that he did not give Jackson anything that should have killed him. However, during a six-day preliminary hearing at the Los Angeles Superior court, testimony was given that Murray ordered hundreds of bottles of Propofol in the months before the incident.

Pastor also granted a request by the California Medical Board to suspend Murray’s license to practice medicine in the state.

Murray could face up to four years in prison if convicted.
