While the first week of the trial of the death of Michael Jackson’s death concludes, the jurors now wind up the whole case on the actions of the accused Dr. Conrad Murray on the day when the singer died. Jackson died in 2009 June and Dr.Murray has been alleged of man slaughtering the singer with a deadly dose of propofol.
Some of the witnesses, who were present at the scene of the death of the singer had given their testimonies in the court on Friday. Among the witnesses were some of the staffers and a few paramedics.
Richard Seneff, one of the paramedics had said that he had seen Jackson lying on the floor with a surgical cap on his head and eyes wide open. Seneff had also noticed the doctor sweating in tension and trying to revive the singer.
Later the team of paramedics had tried their best to revive the singer for more than 40 minutes. Seneff said that Jackson’s skin was turning blue and that Murray had never discussed about giving Jackson a dose of the aneasthetic propofol. However, Murray had revealed that he used to give a dose of lorazepam to help the singer sleep as he was an insomniac.

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.
