Jackson doctor in child support probe

LAS VEGAS - The doctor investigated in connection with pop star Michael Jackson’s death is facing an arrest warrant for failing to appear for a child-support hearing, officials confirmed Thursday.
Conrad Murray, the physician being probed for administering a sedative to Jackson when he died in June, could be arrested next week if he does not appear before a judge, Clark County District Attorney David Roger said.

"This is a routine thing," Roger said. "It's only news because it's him."
Murray, 56, owes 13,000 dollars in back payments of child support to Nenita Malibiran, a California woman with whom he has a child.
Roger said his office may ask the Nevada medical board to suspend his medical license if Murray does not pay up his overdue support. The doctor would have 30 days to pay up or risk losing his license.
Murray’s financial situation has been under scrutiny since he became the center of the probe into the June 25 death of the King of Pop which, official documents related to searches of his home and offices indicate, is being investigated as a homicide involving the powerful anesthetic propofol.
The doctor is behind more than 71,000 dollars on student loans for medical school, has defaulted on his home mortgage and owes more than 363,000 dollars in judgments against him or his businesses.
The Los Angeles County coroner's office has said lethal levels of propofol were in Michael Jackson's system.
