Murray Trial Mistresses On The Stand
Three of Dr. Conrad Murray's girlfriends take the stand.
The sixth day of the Conrad Murray trial is getting underway in Los Angeles.
The prosecution will try to build on foundations it set yesterday when some key witnesses testified about the distractions and desperation that Dr. Murray experienced around the time of Michael Jackson's death.
Three of Dr. Conrad Murray's mistresses took the stand today: The mother of his extra-marital child to whom Murray had his shipments of Propofol sent; a dancer he met at a gentleman's club who Murray texted the day Michael Jackson died; and a Houston waitress with whom Murray was talking when he noticed something had gone horribly wrong.
Yesterday, the testimony revealed that Dr. Murray not only administered the potentially lethal drug Propofol in a manner practically unheard of in the medical community, but that he did it while his mind was elsewhere.
The testimony from cell phone representatives and Murray's acquaintances showed that he had made or received 11 personal and business related phone calls within the few hours before he discovered that Jackson had stopped breathing.
He also sent numerous text messages and e-mails, all while Jackson was allegedly on a combination of drugs so sensitive, at least three physicians and nurses would have been monitoring the patient in a typical hospital setting.
The defense maintains that Jackson was a desperate addict who ultimately gave himself the deadly drug cocktail.
If convicted of the involuntary manslaughter charge, Dr. Murray faces up to 4 years in prison.
