Michael Jackson's death has been ruled as homicide, the Los Angeles County Coroner said today in a move that could lead the way to criminal charges.

The King of Pop died as a result of "acute propofol intoxication", a release from the coroner's department revealed.

Earlier this week, court documents disclosed that Jackson's personal doctor, Dr Conrad Murray, administered propofol - a powerful sedative - just hours before the singer collapsed at his rented Los Angeles home.
