Outside the court, Murray's defenders have gathered
and protested his innocence since Day 1 of the trial.
Charged with involuntary manslaughter (he denies it) the prosecution contends that simply allowing Jackson to be in the same room as a small pharmacy of sedatives, including Propofol, should be enough to convict the doctor.
The showdown between the trial's two key expert witnesses, longtime friends and colleagues, will be fascinating. Dr Steven Shafer has spelled out in intricate detail how he believes Jackson died and how only Dr Murray could be blamed for the singer's death. The defense plan to call Dr Paul White, who was once Dr Shafer's teacher, to present a counter argument.
