Conrad Murray Will Not Testify At MJ Death Trial
The King of Pop's ex-doctor has decided against giving evidence...
Michael Jackson's former doctor Conrad Murray has announced he will NOT testify at his involuntary manslaughter trial.
On Monday, Murray had told Judge Michael Pastor that he was still undecided on whether he would give evidence, confirming yesterday that he's decided against taking to the stand.
The physician apparently studied each of his lawyers for a few seconds before telling Pastor: "My decision is that I will not testify in this matter."
As the prosecution and defence rested their cases in the trial, Murray's announcement means that the only evidence the jury have heard from him is from a two-hour tape of a police interview he gave just two days after MJ's death.
Closing arguments for the six-week case are expected to begin on Thursday, where prosecutors are likely to conclude that Murray caused Jackson's death by administering a lethal dose of the anaesthetic Propofol.
Murray denies the charge of involuntary manslaughter, as well as gross negligence and could face up to four years in jail if found guilty.
