Michael Jackson's doctor sentenced to 4 years in jail

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, on Tuesday was sentenced to four years in jail for his conviction on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the pop superstar's 2009 death.

The judge in the case denied any probation for Murray. "Thriller" singer Jackson died of a drug overdose in June 2009.
