Conrad Murray 'Responsible' For Michael Jackson's Death
An expert claims he was "clueless" when giving MJ the drug Propofol...
Michael Jackson the drug Propofol, according to an expert on the anaesthetic.
Giving evidence at Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial yesterday, Dr. Steven Shafer told the court that the powerful substance should never be used to treat insomnia.
Shafer claimed: "We are in pharmacological never-never land here, something that was done to Michael Jackson and no one else in history to my knowledge,"
Addressing claims that Jackson 'begged' Murray for anaesthetic to help him sleep, the Columbia University professor stated: "Saying 'yes' is not what doctors do. A competent doctor would know you do not do this."
He then branded Murray "clueless" about the drug, stating his negligence was directly responsible for the King of Pop's death.
Shafer, who helped write guidance labels on bottles of Propofol, also told the court that Murray had no idea how to respond to MJ when he stopped breathing.
Commenting on Murray's decision to delay calling 911, he said: "I almost don't know what to say. That is so completely and utterly inexcusable."
Shafer is thought to be the prosecutions final witness, and is expected to finish his testimony later today.
