Katherine Jackson, Joe Jackson


Michael Jackson's family watched as Dr. Conrad Murray's faced a manslaughter charge today. And they've already rendered their verdict.

"He should have pleaded guilty," mother Katherine Jackson told reporters after Murray entered a not-guilty plea.

"He killed my son," Katherine said.

"I didn't like today's hearing at all," dad Joe Jackson exclusively told E! News. "I just want justice done and that was not justice."

La Toya Jackson, meanwhile, thinks the proceedings are going to get even more complicated in the future.

"Michael was murdered and although he died at the hands of Dr. Conrad Murray, I believe Dr. Murray was a part of a much larger plan," Michael's sister said in a statement. "There are other individuals involved and I will not rest and  I will continue to fight until all of the proper individuals are brought forth and justice is served."

Murray was expected to leave Los Angeles after posting $75,000 bail.

"Dr. Murray is doing fine...He's in good spirits. He's going to be out in 45 minutes. He's going to make bail," one of Murray's lawyers, Edward Chernoff, said during a brief press conference. "He'll back to his family and to his medical practice this week."

Asked whether it would be possible to find an impartial jury in L.A. County, Chernoff replied, "It's going to be tough, but I think if we get the right jury, the right result will come in."

"This has been a nightmare for [Murray] for many different reasons, and one of the reasons is that he lost a friend," he continued, adding that Murray will be leaving L.A. soon, presumably to return to Las Vegas.

"He's going to go home," Chernoff said. "He's going to go back to his family and to his practice."

Murray did not speak to any members of the Jackson family who were in court today, including his parents and siblings La Toya Jermaine, Tito and Randy.

"No, he didn't notice them," Chernoff said. "We didn't notice them."
