Jury deliberations begin in Conrad Murray Trial

The jury in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor begins deliberating Dr. Conrad Murray's late Friday morning. This comes after some emotional closing arguments were delivered Thursday.

Prosecutor David Walgren maintained that the evidence against Murray is "overwhelming" and "abundantly clear." Walgren reminded jurors that this trial isn't just about Michael Jackson – but about his children who will now grow up without a father. The defense argued that the trial was not a "reality show."

CNN legal analyst Paul Callan explains to Carol Costello why he believes the jury will reach a verdict quickly – and why Dr. Murray could be convicted.
