Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.
Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”
AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”
Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t getMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray, the terrible physician convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, is still not showing remorse.
Moreover, he’s taking new shots at MJ’s mother.
In a phone interview, Conrad Murray accuses 82-year-old Katherine Jackson of letting him down and “failing to be there” while he was alive.
Asked if he’d ask forgiveness from Katherine for giving the insomniac star a cocktail of drugs that led to his death, Murray was incredulous.
“Mrs Jackson does not have to forgive me because I am not responsible for his death,” he said. “There is nothing forMore >
Despite its role in earning him a four-year prison sentence, Dr. Conrad Murray doesn’t regret for a second filming the now-infamous documentary about his trial.
In said documentary, he said he didn’t regret his actions because he didn’t do anything wrong … a jury disagreed and convicted him of involuntary manslaughter.
The making of the film, which was released after Murray’s conviction but before his sentencing, in the Michael Jackson death trial, infuriated Judge Michael Pastor.

La Toya Jackson is irate over the documentary featuring Dr. Conrad Murray to air on MSNBC. She’s demanding it be pulled out of respect for her brother Michael.
The late pop singer’s sister says the controversial documentary, which will air tomorrow, essentially gives “a murderer and convicted felon … celebrity status.”
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, not murder, but MJ’s estate and fans are still understandably upset about the Conrad Murray documentary.
La Toya fired off a letter to MSNBC, claiming it’s outrageous that Michael cannot defend himself against Murray’sMore >

Dr. Conrad Murray will no longer be taking the stand to testify in his own defense in the involuntary manslaughter trial stemming from Michael Jackson’s 2009 death.
This marks a reversal of his original plan to testify.
Murray told his lawyers from day one that he wants to testify and tell his side of the story, but his lead attorney, Ed Chernoff, believes it’s not worth the risk.
His reasoning is simple: Murray wouldn’t be able to withstand a tough cross examination that the DA would subject him to, and would hurt his own cause.

Dr. Conrad Murray’s attorneys are trying to change defendant’s defense in his involuntary manslaughter trial, telling jurors Michael Jackson had much more than two minutes alone self-administer a fatal dose of Propofol June 25, 2009.
By claiming this, they are contradicting Murray’s own statement.
Murray’s attorney J. Michael Flanagan suggested that the two-minute window Murray said he left the star alone for that morning wasn’t accurate after all.
Prosecutors have lambasted the idea that MJ could have woken up, grabbed a bottle of Propofol and injected it into the port in his leg in justMore >
In their most striking piece of evidence yet, prosecutors showed jurors today an autopsy photo of Michael Jackson, dead and naked, his body lying on gurney.
The photo, admitted in Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, was taken hours after the star died. MJ’s death, as we know, was ruled a homicide.
The date on the tiles beside his body reads August 25, 2009. However, Dr. Christopher Rogers claimed the date was a simple error, and should read June 25.
This was shown during opening statements. Today’s image is far more graphic.
Rogers said it is extremely unlikely MichaelMore >
In an interview just after Michael Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray told police he had no clue what medications the star had been prescribed by other physicians.
Murray also says Jackson never told him he was seeing other doctors – a clue as to how he may present a defense at his ongoing involuntary manslaughter trial.
Two days after Jackson’s death, Murray cited Dr. Arnold Klein, a longtime friend of Michael, as a doctor who regularly prescribed MJ drugs behind Murray’s back.
Murray, by his own admission, knew this was going on. But to what degree?
According to Murray, MJ’s productionMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense attorney has told jurors that the personal physician to Michael Jackson gave him a modest 25 milligrams of Propofol on June 25, 2009.
Reports suggest the star had significantly higher levels of the powerful anesthetic in his system, however. Of course, Murray’s defense also has an answer for that.
Dr. Murray’s lawyers contend that when the cardiologist left the room briefly, Michael Jackson killed himself, unintentionally, by taking a lethal dose himself.
Among the problems with Murray’s controversial defense theory:
- Michael Jackson’s fingerprints were NOT on
Entering its second week today, Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial is not exactly off to a strong start from the physician’s perspective.
Various witnesses detailed his panicked and inconsistent behavior, such as concealing evidence. Paramedics even said he didn’t call 911 fast enough.
Now, the linchpin of his defense – that Michael Jackson killed himself – may be hurt by a report that MJ’s prints were not found on any Propofol bottles.

Prince, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, the children of the late Michael Jackson, have decided to instill a self-imposed boycott of Dr. Conrad Murray’s trial.
The physician, accused of involuntary manslaughter, faces a long prison term if convicted. The trial, which began last week, is expected to last weeks.
Sources say that for the kids, especially Prince and Paris, rehashing the details of how Michael died is just too hard, and they’re trying to tune it out.
Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mother and the kids’ guardian, is said to be relieved that kids aren’t more curious and desperate to payMore >
A paramedic who rushed to save Michael Jackson’s life on June 25, 2009, said that if Dr. Conrad Murray called 911 sooner, EMTs might have had a chance.
Richard Senneff said that on that day, Murray told him he called 911 the second he realized MJ was in distress – a claim others have disputed at length.
Yesterday, bodyguard Alberto Alvarez testified that the Michael Jackson 911 call – which he placed – came well after Murray discovered Jackson unresponsive.
According to the police, the delay was at least 20 minutes.

In day two of the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial, Michael Jackson’s personal assistant Michael Amir Williams took the stand to describe panicked voicemail Murray left on Williams’ phone the day Jackson died.
The key points from Williams’ testimony:
- Jackson’s final rehearsal, on June 24, 2009, was “amazing.”
- The following day, Williams received a panicked message from Murray at 12:13 p.m. saying, “call me right away.” Murray told Williams that MJ had some sort of “bad reaction” and to “get somebody here immediately.”
- Williams arrived to see MJ on a gurney and Murray “frantic.”
Dr. Conrad Murray took a walloping in court Monday after the judge threw out potentially key components of the embattled physician’s case that he is not guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
First, Judge Michael Pastor ruled that Jackson’s personal history, including all references to child molestation, will not be permitted during Murray’s trial.
Then, he determined that Jackson’s dermatologist and longtime friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, won’t be allowed to testify when Murray is tried next month.
Pastor stated that Dr. Klein’s role in MJ’s care isn’t relevant,More >
