TODAY‘s Diana Alvear reported from the Los Angeles County courthouse Tuesday, where jury selection is set to get underway for the trial.

“The trial is really going to come down to did AEG have sufficient control over Dr. Murray to encourage Dr. Murray to treat Michael Jackson in an improper way,” said Professor John Nockleby of Loyola Law School.

Conrad Murray, who served as Jackson’s personal physician, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s 2009 death.

Alvear also reported that AEG attorneys are expected to revisit Jackson’s child molestation trial from 2005. Jackson was acquitted in that case, but the lawyers are expected to suggest that it could have influenced his emotional and physical state at the time of his death.
