Murray is expected to surrender this afternoon around 4:30PM ET at a courthouse near Los Angeles International Airport. He was expected to turn himself in last Friday, but Murray's lawyer and prosecutors couldn't agree on the terms of the surrender.
A Houston resident, Murray was hired by Jackson to help the singer cope with the stresses of preparing for his 'This Is It' residency at London's O2 Arena. Murray, a cardiologist, was mainly treating Jackson for insomnia with a combination of anesthetics, including propofol and lorazepam. After Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, the coroner ruled it a homicide and noted that the cause of death was "acute propofol intoxication."
Murray has been in Los Angeles since the end of January, reportedly to visit family and await the charges. Last week, he visited Jackson's gravesite at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
