Potential jurors in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, are being given a long questionnaire.

The prospective jurors will have to answer about 160 questions before being picked to be on the jury. The judge has set the initial round of questioning for later next week.

Candidates will be ordered to return in May to undergo in-person questioning about their lives and views of the case.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death.
