Dr. Conrad Murray will not testify in his own defense as his involuntary manslaughter trial comes to a close in Los Angeles.
Michael Jackson’s personal physician stands accused of administering the fatal dose of anesthetic propofol which cost the King of Pop his life on 25 June, 2009. He has pleaded not guilty but he will not take the stand to defend himself. Murray’s lawyers maintain Jackson self-administered the drug that killed him by taking additional doses orally when the medic was not in the room.

The case has entered its sixth week and is expected to be handed over to the jury by the weekend following closing statements from the prosecution and defense teams.

There will be no court session on Wednesday.
