London: Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, is reportedly quite sick in prison after contracting dysentery.

According to the 59-year-old, having to live off tinned fish and dirty water at the LA County Jail has given him the disease, the Daily Star reported.

However, Los Angeles Sheriff spokesman said all inmates receive “proper nutrition and medical care”.

Murray was jailed for four years for the involuntary manslaughter of 50-year-old pop king Jackson in 2009.
