Washington (ANI): The date for michael jackson"s burial has been delayed. The singer will now be laid to rest on August 31. The King of Pop, who died on June 25 at his rented LA mansion, was to be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California, on August 29, on what would have been his 51st birthday.
But the star's father Joe revealed the date had been pushed back by two days so that the Jacksons could have more time for preparations, reports Contactmusic. Meanwhile, Jackson"s personal physician, who allegedly administered strong anaesthetic to the music legend before his death, will be charged with manslaughter, it was reported.
Dr Conrad Murray, who apparently admitted giving the sedative Propofol via an IV drip to help the singer sleep, will purportedly be taken into custody within two weeks.
