bottle and vial after vial of medications removed from Michael
Jackson's bedroom was powerful. Whom ever is in charge of the
courtroom cameras ensured TV stations received plenty of slow panning
shots showing the drugs lined up on a desk, in front of the jury.
Today the defense lawyer, Ed Chernoff, is attempting to discredit the
evidence of a coroner's investigator, Elissa Fleak, who testified
that she collected the items from Jackson's home. He is questioning Ms
Fleak's memory and note-keeping. He has suggested that she made a
number of mistakes in preparing reports on the death.
Today is day 8 of the trial.
