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.

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.”

Both sister La Toya Jackson and father Joe Jackson have stated theyÂ think Dr. Conrad Murray wasn’t the only guilty party involved in Michael Jackson’s death, although the entire familyÂ believesÂ he was the primary hand behind the singer’s demise and should have faced heftier charges. Joe Jackson, in particular, has hinted repeatedly that some of the blame should fall on those pushingÂ Michael JacksonÂ toÂ commit to a grueling schedule for the ‘This Is It’ tour.
“There’s other people, I think, involved with this whole thing,” Joe Jackson said on CNN’s Larry King Live. “He was afraid to even do all of these shows [in his planned tour], because he was afraid that he wouldn’t get a chance to finish all of the shows,” Joe Jackson said. “He couldn’t do all those shows back-to-back. Even his kids say that he had told them that he would be murdered.”
Michael was murdered, and although he died at the hands of Dr. Conrad Murray, I believe Dr. Murray was a part of a much larger plan,” La Toya Jackson said in a press statement. “There are other individuals involved, and I will not rest and I will continue to fight until all of the proper individuals are brought forth and justice is served.”
