MICHAEL Jackson's sister La Toya hit out at the apparent decision to charge his doctor with involuntary manslaughter, Sky News reported today. She said Dr Conrad Murray should face the more serious charge of premeditated manslaughter, which carries a heftier sentence.
Talking to reporters outside Mr. Chow's restaurant in Beverly Hills, Jackson said, "He should have been charged with premeditated."
She was then asked if she thought more people were involved in her brother's death, to which she replied, "absolutely."
The singer was speaking as the authorities prepared to charge Murray following a lengthy police investigation.
According to reports in the US he was expected to present himself to Los Angeles police tomorrow morning.
He was then due to be charged with involuntary manslaughter before being taken to court to appear before a judge, reports said.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles attorney's office said she could "neither confirm nor deny" the reports.
Jackson died suddenly last June aged 50 as he was preparing for a series of sell-out concerts at the O2 arena in London.
Murray, who was treating the star, told detectives he had given him the general anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives to help him sleep.
