Testimony in trial of Michael Jackson's doctor to resume Wednesday after new tests disclosed
LOS ANGLES (AP) ' The judge overseeing the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor says testimony in the case will resume Wednesday.
Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor ordered the delay so that defense attorneys can get more details on test results that the coroner's office recently conducted. The tests dealt with the levels of the sedative lorazepam that were found in Jackson's body.
Attorneys for Murray have raised the issue of lorazepam levels and told jurors that the amounts were so high they could have put several people to sleep.
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren told Pastor that he asked for the coroner's office to re-test for lorazepam levels and found that they were lower than the defense analysis suggested.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
