Powerful sleep aid central to the case Michael Jackson’s (PART-4)

Much of the testimony will focus on the anesthetic propofol, normally administered as a sedative in hospital settings.

Prosecutors plan to play (in more detail) a recording of the physician’s interview with police conducted two days after Jackson’s death, when he revealed that he had been giving the entertainer propofol. The disclosure led to Murray being charged in February 2010 with involuntary manslaughter and nearly 20 months of legal wrangling over how the trial would be conducted.

Witnesses’ recollections and conclusions about the events will be challenged to a far greater extent than they were during a preliminary hearing earlier this year that resulted in a judge ruling there was enough evidence for Murray to stand trial.
