The sudden death of Michael Jackson, in the summer of 2009 left family, friends and fans of the singer with many questions. In the ongoing months following Jackson’s death, it was revealed that the cause was an acute Propofol intoxication in combination with other contributing sedatives. Jackson’s attorneys then concluded that the pop sensation’s former doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray was at fault.The doctor is now facing involuntary manslaughter charges for Jackson’s death. In an attempt to clear the doctor’s name, the defense will argue that the singer actually killed himself.”I do think it’s clear the defense is operating under the theory that the victim, Michael Jackson, killed himself,” said Deputy District Attorney David Walgren.Attorney for the defense, J. Michael Flanagan refused to comment on any possible strategies or theories that will be used by the defense. Flanagan did however tell Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor that there was possibly 150 milligrams of anesthetic Propofol present in Jackson’s system. Which is inconsistent with Murray claims that he only gave the singer 25 in addition to small amounts of sedatives to help Jackson sleep.Jan. 4 will begin a preliminary hearing, after which the judge will determine if the prosecution has sufficient evidence to hold Murray for trial.
