Michael Jackson case lawyers name 103 witnesses

Michael Jackson case lawyers name 103 witnesses
Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers will seek to prove Michael Jackson was mentally unstable when he died.
Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers will seek to prove Michael Jackson was mentally unstable when he died.
The team are planning to call on nine medical professionals including Dr. Arnold Klein and Cherilyn Lee to strengthen Murray's claims he did not administer the lethal dose of the anaesthetic that killed the iconic singer in June 2009, as part of his defence against charges of involuntary manslaughter.
They are hoping the professionals will paint a picture of Michael as being erratic and having a demanding personality.
A source told 'Cherilyn is prepared to testify at the trial and tell the truth. Cherilyn has never spoken with anyone from the District Attorney's office. She was interviewed in the weeks after Jackson's death by the coroner and the LAPD. Cherilyn hasn't heard from those agencies since that time.'
Another name on the list of 103 people who could be called by the defence is Dr. Neil Ratner, who toured with the singer in 1996 and 1997. Ratner was allegedly hired to combat the singer's sleeping problems by 'taking him down' and 'bringing him back up', a CNN report has previously claimed.
It is expected that Murray's lawyers will quiz Dr. Ratner about the specific details of his medical treatment for the star, as he has previously refused to disclose more than the fact Michael had a sleep disorder.
Dr. David Adams, a Las Vegas anaesthesiologist who gave the singer Propofol at least four times for medical reasons, will also be asked to testify.
According to a source, the defence feels 'Dr. Adams is clearly relevant.'
Jury selection for the trial begins on September 8, with opening arguments scheduled to begin on September 26, with the case potentially lasting until November.
Dr. Murray could be jailed for up to four years if convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
