Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray's Home Repossessed
DR. Conrad Murray's home was repossessed and sold at auction as he prepared to stand trial over the death of Michael Jackson.
The medic is accused of administering the drug that killed the King of Pop in 2009. He pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and his trial began in Los Angeles last month (Sep11).
Murray has also suffered severe financial problems in recent months and was locked in a dispute with his former partner over child support payments.
It has now emerged his Las Vegas home was repossessed and sold at auction earlier this year (11) for $800,000 (£500,000) - approximately half the price he paid for the property in 2004, according to public records obtained by Britain's Sunday Mirror.
Murray reportedly struggled to pay his mortgage following Jackson's death and now lives in a rented apartment in Santa Monica, California.
