LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas district attorney says the doctor at the center of an investigation into Michael Jackson's death may face arrest and could lose his medical license after missing a hearing to explain late child support payments.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger told The Associated Press on Thursday that a district judge could approve an arrest warrant recommended by a family court hearing master within 10 days.

Roger says Murray owes $13,000 in unpaid child support and can object to the warrant before a judge approves it.

A spokeswoman for Murray's lawyer in the Jackson case says Edward Chernoff is not representing Murray in the family court case.

Roger says he plans to ask the state medical board to suspend Murray's medical license because of unpaid child support.
