Randy and Janet Jackson were in court yesterday for a pre-trial hearing concerning Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician who is accused of administering the fatal dose of propofol ((A powerful sedative used mainly during surgery. )) that took the life of Michael Jackson. Janet and her family have stated several times via the media that they believe Murray is responsible for Michael’s death. Murray has been charged with manslaughter, a charge he plead not guilty to. Reports say Murray’s defense will be that Jackson administered the lethal dose himself. When asked about the legal tactic, Miranda Sevcik, a spokesperson for Murray’s lawyer, Ed Chernoff, said it’s “premature to discuss defense at this time.” The defense team is expected to request a later date for a preliminary hearing to allow more time to go over evidence from the district attorney’s office. The defense will also take up California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s move to stop Murray from practicing in the state. In February, Murray was released on bail.
