LOS ANGELES — The case against the doctor accused of killing Michael Jackson has gone to the jury, with deliberations set to begin Friday.

The seven-man, five-woman panel got the case Thursday after spirited, daylong closing arguments by a prosecutor and defense attorney.

Prosecutor David Walgren urged the group to convict Dr. Conrad Murray, arguing the Houston-based cardiologist was reckless with Jackson's life and left his children without a father when he gave the singer an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol.

Defense attorney Ed Chernoff countered that Jackson injected himself with the fatal dose and prosecutors were trying to convict Murray for the actions of Jackson.
