The doctor who was found guilty of administering a drug that killed the King of Pop Michael Jackson in 2009 could be released from prison should his appeal prove to be successful.

Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray was sentenced to four year in prison after giving the superstar a fatal dose of propofol.

However, Murray - who was charged with involuntary manslaughter - could be out of prison before the New Year.

His defence team made an appeal against the conviction and have requested to a Californian appeals court for him to be released.

The Californian Second District Court of Appeals received a motion for Murray to be "released on his own recognisance pending appeal, or alternatively, that (the court) order his release on reasonable bail".

Murray previously had his bail request denied in February. He is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2013.
