    Conrad Murray's arraignment is turning out to be a family affair. Just not his own.

    A source in the Jackson camp tells E! News that a number of Michael Jackson's relatives plan to attend today's arraignment for the embattled cardiologist, who's facing a charge of involuntary manslaughter for allegedly giving the King of Pop an overdose of propofol.

    Michael's parents, Katherine and Joe, along with siblings Jermaine, Tito, La Toya and Randy and several of the "Thriller" singer's nephews are expected to turn up as a group around noon for the hearing at the Airport Branch of the Los Angeles Superior Court to witness Murray's formal surrender.

    While Michael's three children will not be present, the source added that Joe Jackson flew in to L.A. over the weekend to plug his latest music venture be there specifically to seek "justice for his son."

    Bail for the doctor is likely to be set at $25,000.
