*The doctor charged in the death of Michael Jackson has sent well wishes to the singer’s brother Randy after finding out that he was hospitalized earlier this week.
Dr. Conrad Murray, who is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge, was reportedly shocked to discover Randy had been taken to the Huntington Memorial Hospital, in Pasadena, on Tuesday with chest pains, and expressed hopes that he will recover.
“Dr. Murray feels so sorry for Randy and the family,” a rep for the cardiologist told X17Online. “He knows the tremendous amount of stress they’ve been under. He wishes them all the best. Dr. Murray knew them before the death of Michael and he has nothing but great memories of them. He, too, is anxious to find out who is responsible for Michael’s death.”
Ironically, Randy fell ill shortly after attending Murray’s court hearing in Los Angeles Monday to determine if he should have his medical license revoked because of the involuntary manslaughter charge.
As previously reported, Murray – who has been accused of administering lethal amounts of Propofol and other drugs to Michael shortly before his passing on June 25 2009 – was allowed to keep his license after Judge Michael Pastor ruled he did not have the power to overturn the decision previously made by another judge.
Murray is due in court for a preliminary hearing on August 23. If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, he faces up to four years in prison.
