The trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor is underway in California this week. Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal physician, is on trial for manslaughter. The prosecution’s theory: Murray was administering Jackson a drug as a sedative (to help Jackson sleep) that is extremely dangerous and powerful. The trial will involve complex medical testimony around the medication involved. Murray’s defense theory is that Jackson took an extra amount of the medication on his own and thus overdosed on it. This theory is premised on the fact that the drug was found in Jackson’s stomach and it wouldn’t ordinarily be found in his stomach unless it was drank.
