"A law enforcement source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment, said Murray was placed on suicide watch once in custody," the L.A. Times reports. Only hours earlier, L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor ordered Dr. Conrad Murray behind bars pending Murray's November 29 sentencing for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.
