Jackson's Doctor 'Tried To Hide Medical Evidence'
Dr. Conrad Murray allegedly waited 20 minutes before calling 911...
A US court has been told how Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, asked a bodyguard to hide the medical evidence thought to have contributed to MJ's death in June 2009.
Murray attended a preliminary court hearing yesterday to determine whether he should stand trial for the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop, where he listened to prosecutors accusing him of being "negligent" when it came to treating Michael's insomnia.
The Sun reports that prosecutor David Walgren revealed to the court that the doctor allegedly ordered bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, to hide all drugs at the scene, while he was trying to revive Jacko on the bed.
It also emerged that Murray reportedly waited 20 minutes to call 911 for an ambulance, meaning that Jackson was already dead by the time the Dr. Murray placed the phonecall for assistance.
The newspaper reports that Walgren told the court: "According to Conrad Murray at 10.30am he is slowly injecting Michael Jackson with Propofol."
"At some point we know Michael ceases to breathe and dies. The evidence will show that by all accounts he was dead prior to medics arriving. It will show there were only two people in the room - Michael Jackson and Conrad Murray - and Michael is deceased."
He added: "Alvarez, obeying the order of the physician, grabs the IV bag and puts that in the bag. Only then is he instructed to call 911."
Alvarez is one of 30 witnesses who is set to be called to give evidence in the hearing, where Jacko's mother Katherine, sister La Toya and brother's Jermaine and Jackie were in attendance.
Dr. Murray has denied the possible involuntary manslaughter charges, which could land him with a four year prison sentence if found guilty.
