Jackson's doctor’s defence demand

The defence team of Dr. Conrad Murray in the case of Michael Jackson’s death are demanding that concerned medical supplies be tested immediately as the lawyers claim evidence has deteriorated since the pop star’s death.

In a 40-minute closed session with the presiding judge, the accused discussed the items – which included two syringes and an IV bag – claiming that the liquid in one of the syringes has already turned to salt.

A specialist was requested to overlook testing, but was refused by the judge on the grounds that the prosecution was not made aware of the request until just before the meeting. The requested testing can only be performed once as it would ultimately destroy the evidence.

Dr. Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the King of Pop’s death.

Jackson died suddenly in June last year shortly before a lucrative series of concerts at London’s O2 arena.
