Jurors in Michael Jackson case hear doctor describe telling family, kids of superstar's death
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Jurors hearing the case against the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death have heard the physician describe how he told the singer's family about the pop superstar's demise.
Dr. Conrad Murray calmly told police detectives on June 27, 2009, about how he says he cautiously told Jackson's mother and held her hand while she cried.
He also described telling the singer's children about their father's death and Jackson's daughter's fears about being left an orphan.
Prosecutors continued playing a more-than-two-hour interview of Murray by detectives on Tuesday, the trial's 10th day.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
He is accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and sedatives, although Murray's attorneys claim the singer gave himself the fatal dose.
