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.
â€œI didnâ€™t hear him on the phone anymore,â€ Anding said during her previous testimony. â€œI heard commotion as if the phone was in a pocket and I heard coughing and I heard a mumbling of voices.â€
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.

Michael Jackson died of an overdose of propofol, which prosecutors claim was administered by Dr. Conrad Murray. Murray’s legal team claims Michael Jackson injected the dangerous sedative into himself without Murray’s knowledge.
The Dr. Conrad Murray trial continued on Monday with testimony from ER doctor Richelle Cooper about pop superstar Michael Jackson‘s death. Cooper testified in court on Friday that Dr. Conrad Murray never told hospital staff he had given Michael Jackson a dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol before the singer went into cardiac arrest.
Dr. Richelle Cooper, who was part of the team that attempted to resuscitate Michael Jackso at the Ronald Reagon UCLA Medical Center, said Murray only told her he had given Jackson two small doses of the sedative lorazepam. She said that Murray made no mention that he had been dosing Michael Jackson with propofol for several months to help him sleep.
According to her testimony, Dr. Cooper claims she gave paramedics permission to declare Michael Jackson dead at his mansion, but Dr. Conrad Murray insisted the singer be taken to the hospital for additional resuscitation efforts. A paramedic at the scene previously testified they believed Jackson was dead for at least 20 minutes before emergency personnel arrived on scene.
When Michael Jackson arrived at UCLA Medical Center, Dr. Cooper said her “assesment when he arrived was that he was clinically dead.”
The legal team for Dr. Conrad Murray claims Michael Jackson injected himself with the large dose of propofol that killed him. Murray has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. Murray could receive four years in prison if he is convicted.
