Fans and family react to Michael Jackson death charges


Michael Jackson's former doctor has denied a charge of involuntary manslaughter over the singer's death, at a court in Los Angeles. A judge must decide whether to proceed to trial.

A conviction could bring a jail term of up to four years. Jackson died at his home on 25 June last year at the age of 50.

Members of Jackson's family and fans of the singer attended Monday's hearing.

As they left the courthouse they expressed outrage at the charge.
