The California attorney general’s office has accused Dr. Conrad Murray of incompetence and negligence in a bid to permanently revoke his medical license.
Murray, the physician convicted of felony involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, has already had his license suspended.

He has appealed the conviction.
