Jackson doc told police of singer's need for sleep

-A A +A
By Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — For nearly three hours, the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death told police about his final hours with the superstar who was so desperate for sleep that he was getting anesthetic injections in his bedroom six nights a week.

Dr. Conrad Murray's interview two days after Jackson's death in June 2009 led police back to the singer's mansion, where they ultimately found 12 vials of propofol. It was a small fraction of the 255 vials a Las Vegas pharmacist said he shipped Murray in the nearly three months before Jackson's death.

The interview also provided detectives with a roadmap of the drugs ultimately found throughout Jackson's system, including the anesthetic propofol and the sedatives lorazepam and midazolam.

On Monday, the homicide detective who interviewed Murray described the doctor's retelling of his efforts to get Jackson to fall asleep and to revive him when he stopped breathing.

Detective Orlando Martinez was the 20th witness prosecutors called during Murray's preliminary hearing, which will end with a judge ruling whether there is enough evidence for the doctor to stand trial on an involuntary manslaughter charge. Although prosecutors have not indicated when they will conclude their case, most major witnesses have already testified.
