LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- As Dr. Conrad Murray faced the judge on Monday in a Los Angeles courtroom, where he was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, several members of the King of Pop’s family members off about the doctor’s case.
And as far as sister La Toya and brother Randy Jackson are concerned, Dr. Murray isn’t the only one who should have to answer for the loss of their brother.
“Michael was murdered and although he died at the hands of Dr. Conrad Murray, I believe Dr. Murray was a part of a much larger plan,” La Toya said in a statement issued to Access Hollywood on Monday afternoon. “There are other individuals involved and I will not rest and I will continue to fight until all of the proper individuals are brought forth and justice is served.”
Meanwhile, Randy Jackson – who was in the courtroom with La Toya and other family members, including Rebi, Jackie, Katherine, Tito, Jermaine and Joe Jackson – claimed other people who have profited from Michael’s death should’ve have been present for the hearing.
“Sitting in court & I’m sad. Those profiting most from my bro’s death: AEG, Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega, Estate Executors r nowhere in sight,” Randy wrote on his Twitter page late Monday afternoon.
Randy is the one brother who did not participate in A&E’s recent reality series about the surviving Jackson brothers.
Tito Jackson also took to his Twitter account to share his thoughts, thanking Michael’s fans for the support they have offered the Jackson family.
“a sad tito-my family and i are happy that you have all expressed you love and support--thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” he wrote.
“i wish i could get a group hug from you all.i can feel your love though,” he added.
Following the hearing, Michael’s mother, Katherine, also sounded off, calling Dr. Murray “a monster,” according to People.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Dr. Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter on Monday in the death of Jackson, who died on June 25 at the age of 50.
He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.
