Dr. Conrad Murray Request New Tests To Prove His Innocence
Convicted criminal Dr. Conrad Murray, who is currently serving a 4-year prison sentence for the death of legendary music icon Michael Jackson, is now requesting that medication administered to Michael be tested in hopes of proving that the superstar was responsible for his own death.
Conrad Murray wants a key piece of evidence tested which his lawyers argue could prove Michael Jackson injected himself with the drug that killed him.
Murray, who is serving a four-year prison sentence, is appealing last year’s involuntary manslaughter conviction in Jackson’s 2009 death.
A motion filed Monday by his lawyers asked an appeals court to order a test of the residue in a 100 milliliter bottle of propofol that prosecutors say contained the fatal dose of surgical anesthetic.
If it contains 10% lidocaine, then it would support prosecution expert Dr. Steven Shafer’s theory that Murray rigged up an IV drip using the bottle and then left the room, Murray’s motion said.
Shafer testified that lidocaine, which was found in Jackson’s blood after his death, was mixed with propofol to ease the sting of the drug as it entered a vein in Jackson’s leg.
“However, if the residue is 100% propofol, it would absolutely refute Shafer’s final contention that was used to prove an IV propofol infusion,” the motion said.
So first he requests a visit from MJ’s mother Katherine in the midst of her family losing their minds over her Late son’s estate, and now a week later he follows up with a request to put the blame solely on MJ for his own death.
SMH. This guy is shameless.
