Michael Jackson Trial Live Stream: Dr. Conrad Murray Girlfriends to Testify

Testimony continued in the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial on Monday. An emergency room doctor who attempted to resuscitate Jackson testified that Dr. Conrad Murray did not inform hospital staff he had been dosing the pop star with the surgical sedative propofol for months before his death. Tune in to watch the Michael Jackson trial live stream below for the latest updates.

In addition to the testimony of emergency room personnel, prosecutors are expected to call three of Dr. Conrad Murray’s girlfriends to the stand soon. One of Murray’s girlfriends, Sade Andig, testified in January that she was on the phone with Murray at the time Michael Jackson allegedly stopped breathing.

“I didn’t hear him on the phone anymore,” Anding said during her previous testimony. “I heard commotion as if the phone was in a pocket and I heard coughing and I heard a mumbling of voices.”

Another of Murray’s girlfriends, Bridgette Morgan, will reportedly testify that she spoke to him by phone just 30 minutes before Michael Jackson died. Nicole Alvarez, another of Murray’s girlfriends and the mother of his youngest child, will also reportedly testify. She is expected to tell jurors about the propofal used by Murray on Michael Jackson, which she claims was shipped to her address.

Kweku Adoboli worked at UBS in London at the ‘Delta One’ desk on exchange-traded funds (ETF) for the past five years. UBS discovered a $ billion loss tracked back to Adoboli’s department on Wednesday. UBS informed the City of London police, leading to Adoboli’s arrest at 3:30AM on Thursday.

“…the Crown Prosecution Service authorised the charging of Kweku Adoboli, from Bethnal Green. City of London police has since charged the 31-year-old with fraud by abuse of position and false accounting,” the police said.

“He involved himself with trades which were highly dangerous for the bank,” prosecutor David Levy said during Adoboli’s initial court hearing. The prosecutor said the alleged offenses range over a time frame from 2008 to the present. Magistrate Carolyn Wagstaff ordered the 31-year-old UBS trader to be held in jail until he returns to court on Sept. 22.

The investigation is currently ongoing with “close collaboration” with the Finacial Services Authority and the Serious Fraud Office. Kweku Adoboli has reportedly retained the services of high-powered law office Kingsley Napley.

UBS had already announced last month it would begin making cuts to their operations to save money. This latest loss coming to light may force the company to dig even deeper to slash costs.

Casey Anthony Trial Update: Defendant Ruled Competant to Face Murder Charge

Over the weekend, Casey Anthony was reportedly examined by three court appointed psychologists, Dr. Daniel Tressler, Dr. Harry McLaren and Dr. Ryan Hall, to determine her competency. According to Judge Belvin Perry, all three psychologists found Anthony competent enough to continue the trial. “Based on the reports that the court has reviewed, the court will find that the defendant is competent to proceed,” Perry announced before the start of Monday’s testimony.

Today marks the 29th day of testimony in the Casey Anthony trial. She is accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, in 2008. Prosecutors allege that Casey Anthony suffocated her daughter with duct tape around her mouth and nose.

When Caylee initially disappeared, Casey Anthony claimed a non-existent nanny had abducted the child. Now Caylee Anthony’s defense team alleges the toddler accidentally drowned in the family pool and that Casey Anthony covered up the death because of emotional trauma she suffered due to abuse by her father and brother. Both men have denied ever abusing Casey Anthony.

Casey Anthony faces the death penalty if she is convicted of killing her daughter.
