LOS ANGELES – Defense attorneys and prosecutors are set to discuss, among other topics, plans for TV coverage of the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor, who faces a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Dr. Conrad Murray has pleaded not guilty in the death of the music superstar on June 25, 2009. A hearing Tuesday will deal with coverage plans, jury questionnaire issues and discovery of evidence.

Attorneys are also scheduled to present names of proposed witnesses. The trial is expected to begin March 24 and last about six weeks.

An autopsy showed that Jackson died of an overdose of an anesthetic combined with other sedatives. Murray’s lawyers say he did nothing that should have caused Jackson’s death.

Prosecutors allege gross negligence in Murray’s administering of the anesthetic, which is intended for use in hospitals.
