The manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray is set to resume on Wednesday. The doctor is accused of being grossly negligent in his care of the late Michael Jackson.
Witnesses have testified that Dr. Murray was negligent in the fact that he was using Propofol in a home setting without adequate monitoring of his patient. Couple that with the fact that he didn’t call 911 within two minutes, and the Prosecution has nearly made its case.
The case wasn’t in court on Friday due to scheduling conflicts and it will not resume until Wednesday. One of the witnesses for the Prosecution suffered a loss in his family.
Los Angeles Judge Michael Pastor made the announcement Monday morning at a hearing attended by the District Attorney and the cardiologist’s lawyers; the jury wasn’t present.
Today’s session of the trial was canceled after the father of the prosecution’s final witness died this weekend, but Judge Pastor ordered the delay of one more day so that Murray’s defense team can get more details from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office test results of Lorazepam levels in Jackson’s body at the time he died.
Dr. Mark Shafer, will be called to resume his testimony on Wednesday when the trial resumes. Stay tuned!
