The much awaited and controversial trial of the death of pop star Michael Jackson has begun on Tuesday. Dr Conrad Murray is now facing the charges of man slaughtering the pop star by administering him with the drug propofol.
On Tuesday, Murray’s lawyer Ed Chernoff had argued that the doctor did not administer him with any drug and that Jackson had ingested the drug himself. The defense continued to reveal that on the day the singer had died, Jackson had swallowed several lorazepam pills which are normally used as sedatives.
However, the defense had put forth his point only after an hour when the prosecution had laid the case in front of the jury. The prosecution had with the help of a multimedia presentation shown the pale body of Jackson and had also presented the audio clip that Murray had recorded, when the singer was in the state of propofol.
On the other hand the defense had even argued that Murray and Jackson were friends and the doctor was just trying to help the singer to get rid of the habit of propofol. Propofol is a drug that is usually used in surgeries to aneasthetise the patients to be operated. Now the jury has demanded that they want to know what had exactly happened just minutes before the singer had stopped breathing.
