Dr. Conrad Murray intends to argue that Michael Jackson killed himself by self-injecting a lethal dose of Propofol while the physician stepped out to use the bathroom.
While that sounds like legal grasping at straws, Murray's defense team says Michael Jackson's body - specifically his eyes - could be powerful evidence in his favor.
The supposed proof that Jackson accidentally killed himself, rather than overdosing on Propofol Murray administered, was obvious when the doctor came back in.
At that point, he says he saw Michael's eyes wide open and his pupils dilated.
Experts say if a patient is sleeping and overdoses, their eyes most likely would not be open. The defense contends Jackson woke up when Murray was not there, became frustrated he couldn't sleep, grabbed the Propofol bottle and "pushed it."
THE EYES HAVE IT: But does Dr. Murray's story hold water?
If a jury believes Jackson's eyes were open, they could also believe Jackson was awake and, perhaps, capable of grabbing the Propofol on the nightstand.
Authorities also say they have a clear explanation for why Michael trouble sleeping the night before he died - tablets that would have really riled him up.
An unlabeled bottle contained 13 tablets, each a combination of ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin. Each pill contained 25 mg of ephedrine, 200 mg of caffeine and 80 mg of aspirin. The caffeine alone is equivalent to nearly a six-pack of Coca-Cola.
According to the toxicology results, ephedrine was present in Jackson. Might he have gotten so hyped up that he felt he needed extra Propofol to sleep?
Murray likely thinks so, and won't accept a plea deal.
