Dr. Conrad Murray Trial: Day Five
Emergency room doctors who attempted to revive Michael Jackson are expected to testify today in the Conrad Murray Trial. Prosecutors could call Dr. Conrad Murray’s girlfriends to discuss phone calls Dr. Murray placed around the time Jackson stopped breathing.
The judge previously issued a gag order preventing the attorneys from speaking to the media.
Today is the fifth day of testimony in Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial. The trial is expected to last at least four more weeks. Prosecutors sayMurray, who was Jackson’s personal physician is criminally responsible for the singer’s death because of medical negligence and his reckless use of the anesthetic propofol to help Jackson sleep.
The coroner ruled that Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, was the result of “acute propofol intoxication” combined with sedatives.
