LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge hearing the Michael Jackson manslaughter case says prosecutors can show jurors two images from the singer’s autopsy.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor ruled Thursday that prosecutors trying Dr. Conrad Murray can show what Pastor described as benign photos that are not graphic or gruesome.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren says he intends to introduce photos during the upcoming trial that will be carefully displayed.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Authorities have accused him of giving Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol in the bedroom of his rented mansion in June 2009.

Murray’s attorneys have suggested in recent months that the singer may have given himself the fatal dose.
