[photogallerylink id=60429 align=left]The most watched investigation into the death of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] has finally come to the court room for the trial of the man accused of causing his death, Dr. Conrad Murray. And the prosecution came out with plenty of evidence against him, including the above photo of Michael before and after.
Shocking audio was delivered in the courtroom of Michael Jackson’s slurred drug impaired speech, which Murray was privy to, just weeks before his death.
According to HiphopDX.com:
The controversial trial of Dr. Conrad Murray started on Tuesday (September 27).
The prosecution and defense have made their opening arguments in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of Pop legend Michael Jackson.
Defense attorney Ed Chernoff told jurors that, on the morning of his death, Jackson swallowed several lorazepam pills, and ingested the anesthetic propofol, allegedly leading to a “perfect storm in his body” that, in the end, was fatal.
The defense’s statement came after more than an hour of opening arguments after prosecutors painted a different picture, according to CBS News.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter, with his attorneys denying that he gave Jackson anything lethal.
Members of the Jackson family in attendance included father Joseph, mother Katherine, sisters LaToya and Janet, and brothers Jermaine, Randy, and Tito.
If convicted Murray faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his medical license.
Plenty of fans and onlookers are out in full force to see what stars come and go into the court room and hopefully get a pictures of them. This trial should last a couple of weeks.
