Michael Jackson's shining star faded on June 25, 2009. It was a day I'll never forget. I first heard word on the radio and I turned on the TV to confirm it. The big red screen said "Michael Jackson Dead".

I was speechless, which is unusual (ask anyone). There are certain memories that I will never forget and learning of the King of Pop tragedy is high on the list.

Fast forward to two years later and someone is on trial for his death. Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's caregiver, is accused of involuntary manslaughter for injecting the music phenom with the anesthetic propofol and failing to monitor him properly.

The accused's "dream team" plans to put Jackson's life on trial. Lead defense attorney Ed Chernoff said "Michael Jackson was involved in certain acts that ended his own life."

It must have been difficult for the Jacksons to lose Michael. And even in death, to hear his life scrutinized.

It's going to be a tough road ahead for the prosecution because Jackson's life and eccentricities are equally remembered. Rumors have circulated about his drug usage for years. Some would even argue, it was just a matter of time.

But on the flip side,Murray did take the Hippocratic Oath which states: "I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone. I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan.."

Do you think Murray will be found guilty?
