Michael Jackson's Family Attack Dr Conrad Murray For 'Frankenstein Medicine'
Michael Jackson's family has reacted angrily to Dr Conrad Murray's conviction for involuntary manslaughter, following the singer's death in 2009.
And it emerged that his mother tried to comfort Murray's own mother in court after the verdict was announced.
The Sun newspaper reports Jackson's brother Tito accusing Murray of practising "Frankenstein medicine", and that the doctor "should spend the rest of his life in jail".
"Instead, Dr Murray did not follow the law. Doctors are supposed to save lives, not to take them," Tito is quoted as reflecting.
Meanwhile, Michael's sister Rebbie said of her experience in the courtroom: "All the stress and pressure hit me. When the verdict was read I felt numb. Michael was no longer here.
"He (Murray) is fully responsible for taking my brother's life and I can never forgive him, neither will my family. I can never forgive him."
Jackson's mother Katherine was more composed, calling the verdict "bitter-sweet".
She said: "I can never forgive Dr Murray for what he did to Michael. Michael's three beautiful children miss him so and my family and I grieve for him each day. His kids say to me, 'Daddy would do this, or Daddy would do that.' It is always something beautiful about their father."
The Sun reports that Katherine said she felt sorry for Murray's mother, who looked "lost" after the verdict was announced. She tried to speak to her in court but was ignored.
