Michael Jackson's death has been ruled a homicide by the LA County coroner as it it emerged that lethal levels of the anaesthetic propofol were found in his body.

It makes it more likely criminal charges will be filed against Jackson's personal doctor who was with the star when he died.

The official says the coroner determined a fatal combination of drugs was given to Jackson hours before he died in his rented Los Angeles mansion on June 25.

The official spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the findings have not been publicly released.

LA County coroner's officials found a lethal dose of propofol after examining Jackson's body, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Dr Conrad Murray told detectives he gave the pop superstar the drug to treat insomnia, according to a newly unsealed search warrant affidavit.

According to the search warrant, Dr Murray told police he had been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol every night using an intravenous line, said the LA Times.

Dr Murray apparently said he feared the pop star was forming an addiction and began trying to wean him off the drugs by lowering the dosage and mixing it with two other sedatives.

On the morning Jackson died, Dr Murray told detectives he tried to induce sleep without using propofol.

According to the affidavit, Dr Murray said he gave the singer various drugs over a period of nearly 12 hours:

:: 1.30am - He gave Jackson valium.

:: 2.00am - When the valium failed to work, he injected lorazepam intravenously.

:: 3.00am, When Jackson was still awake, Murray administered midazolam.

:: 3.00am until 10.40am - Murray said he gave Jackson various drugs.

:: 10.40am - Murray administered 25 milligrams of propofol after Jackson repeatedly demanded the drug.
