Jurors have a reached a verdict in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial. The verdict will be read at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. 

Jackson's mother, 83-year-old Katherine Jackson, filed a lawsuit against AEG Live LLC in 2010. She claims that the company acted with negligence when hiring Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, to care for him while he prepared for his comback tour, "This is It." 

Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death and sentenced to four years in Los Angeles County Men's Jail in November of 2011. 

According to CBS News, AEG Live does not take responsibility for Jackson's death, claiming that it was a personal rather than a corporate matter.

Check back for updates on the verdict.
