LOS ANGELES - The manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor has been put on hold for one day due to a death in the family of one prosecution witness, a court official said on Sunday.

Dr. Steven Shafer had been scheduled to testify on Monday, and is the final witness the prosecution is expected to call before resting its case against Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of the pop superstar.

Los Angeles Superior Court spokeswoman Mary Hearn said the judge in the case will meet with prosecutors and defense attorneys on Monday to discuss when to resume the trial.
