Trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray

December 29, 2010
The judge approved a plan to allow defense lawyers to test residue from syringes and an intravenous drip found in Jackson's home. Deputy DA David Walgren said in court that his office has shared everything and never objected to testing the syringes or intravenous drip as long as the coroner followed proper procedures. "The theory that they're running with is Michael Jackson killed himself," said prosecutor Walgren.
