Defense attorneys for the doctor accused of killing Michael Jackson began their case Monday after prosecutors presented a portrait of the physician as the inept, distracted engineer of the King of Pop's death.
A doctor has told jurors that Michael Jackson asked him about intravenous sleep medications roughly two months before the pop superstar's death.
Michael Jackson, desperate for sleep, warned a doctor on the day he died that he would have to cancel his comeback concerts unless he received a dose of "his milk" _ the powerful anesthetic propofol, according to testimony from the lead detective in the case against Jackson's doctor.
He said Jackson fell asleep about 11 a.m. and Murray felt comfortable enough to leave the room and go to the bathroom.
He said Murray also was asked why he was giving Jackson CPR on a soft bed rather than moving Jackson to the floor.
