Conrad Murray Trial Report, Toxicologist To Take Stand
The prosecutors in the Conrad Murray trial will focus today on the multitude of drugs found in Michael Jackson’s home as they try to convince a jury that the doctor is guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
CBS reports that Deputy District Attorney David Walgren lined up more than three dozen bottles of prescription medications-propofol, lidocaine, lorazepam and others-in front of jurors during testimony on Wednesday. He told a judge he plans to call a toxicologist and possibly medical experts as witnesses on Thursday.
Witnesses are expected to fill in details in the case against Murray and explain the relationship between the drugs.
Authorities claim Murray administered a lethal dose of propofol and sedatives that killed Michael Jackson but the doctor’s defense team claims Jackson gave himself the fatal dose.
