Defense says Jackson killed himself with drugs
Defense says Michael Jackson caused 'perfect storm' by self-administering meds that killed him
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A lawyer for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death says the singer caused his own death.

Defense attorney Ed Chernoff told jurors Tuesday hearing the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray that Jackson swallowed several lorazepam pills on the morning of his death and that was enough to put people to sleep.

He claimed Jackson also self-ingested the anesthetic propofol.

He says Jackson created a "perfect storm in his body" that killed him instantly.

He also told jurors their job is not to determine whether the physician is a good doctor or not.

Chernoff's remarks came after more than an hour of opening statements by prosecutors who laid out their case against the Houston-based cardiologist.
