MJcauseadjust.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Michael Jackson’s death has been officially ruled a murder, as his death certificate has been amended to list homicide as the cause of death.

The original certificate, issued on July 7, did not list the cause of death, but after several weeks of investigations the certificate was re-released in August by medical examiner Christopher Thomas with homicide as the official cause.

So will Dr. Conrad Murray be prosecuted for his hand in Jackson's death? Though the DA won't comment on the case, Murray's attorney J. Michael Flanagan has said that it will be difficult for the court to charge Murray with involuntary manslaughter, as they will have to base a case on gross negligence, which apparently is no easy feat.
