Conrad Murray will be released from prison on October 28th, three years ahead of schedule, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
A California judge sentenced Murray to four years in prison on involuntary manslaughter charges in November 2011. He allegedly gave Jackson a fatal overdose of Propofol, a sleeping anesthetic, to help him prepare for his “This is It” comeback tour.
Concert giant AEG Live was promoting the tour and ensuring Jackson was ready for it before his untimely death. Katherine Jackson, M.J.’s mom, has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against AEG, claiming they failed to properly supervise Murray. She recently finished an emotional testimony in the case, saying AEG failed to inform her that Michael had been sleep-deprived for two months.
A source close to the Jackson family says they are “devastated” that he is getting an early release.
