California prosecutors don’t want the man they allege killed Michael Jackson practicing medicine. AG Jerry Brown has filed court papers asking that Conrad Murray’s medical license be suspended as a condition of his bail, the Los Angeles Times reports. The judge has already agreed to bar Murray, who is on trial for manslaughter, from administering the kind of anesthetics that allegedly caused Jackson’s death.

The move comes the same day as reports that Murray allegedly tried to hide evidence, collecting vials of medication from the pop star’s room before a security guard could alert authorities to Jackson’s death. (Read more Michael Jackson stories.)
