The Michael Jackson Saga Continues
Lawyers representing the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death want to check out the records from another doctor who treated the singer; his dermatologist. And the judge handling the case against Dr. Conrad Murray will consider letting the defense look over records from the skin doctor, Arnold Klein. The judge says he will review the records from Dr. Klein to see if there is anything helpful to the defense. If there is, he can decide whether to turn the documents over. The records in question cover the last nine months of Jackson’s life. Defense attorneys are trying to show that Jackson was addicted to the powerful painkiller Demerol at the time of his death in June, 2009. Dr. Murray is accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of another powerful drug, propofol – which is usually administered in a hospital setting.
