D.A. on Dr. Conrad Murray Defense: Still Homicide!

by at . Comments

To say the prosecutors in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case are unmoved by Dr. Conrad Murray's defense theory would be an understatement.

They don't seem particularly worried about it, either.

At the preliminary hearing, a doctor for the L.A. County Coroner's Office testified that even if Michael Jackson injected himself with a fatal dose of Propofol, as Dr. Murray's defense team claims, he is still guilty of homicide.

MJ and CM

Dr. Christopher Rogers believes Dr. Murray had no business administering Propofol outside a hospital setting and without appropriate equipment.

Rogers said that given Michael Jackson's dependence on Propofol - Murray calims Jackson begged for the drug - the fact that Murray left MJ by himself (which he admitted) with access to the powerful anesthetic constitutes a homicide.

Well, talk about turning the tables on that theory.

To make matters worse, a doctor for the L.A. County Coroner's Office testified he doesn't believe Dr. Murray only gave Michael Jackson 25 mg of Propofol.

Without saying Murray lied to cops in his interview two days after MJ died, Rogers said Jackson would have awakened after 3-5 minutes after that dose.

Rogers also testified he doesn't think Jackson swallowed Propofol, another angle to a defense that Murray's attorneys laid the groundwork for this week.

Very small amounts of the drug were found in Jackson's stomach, he said in the latest round of testimony to see if Murray will be tried for manslaughter.

Rogers said he believes it's inappropriate to use Propofol for insomnia and that Murray's care was "substandard" any way you slice it. Your move, doc.

Dr. Murray ...
