Michael Jackson Manslaughter Hearing Begins

Court got underway in L.A. this morning. Jackson's mother Catherine, sister LaToya and brother Jackie arrived shortly before 9 a.m.. Murray arrived moments later.

Murray was treating Jackson for chronic insomnia when Jackson died. Murray admitted he gave Jackson a cocktail of powerful sedatives, but Murray’s attorney claimed in court documents, that when Murray was out of the room, Jackson woke up and gave himself more.

Attorney Flanagan says Murray gave Jackson 25 milligrams of propofol, but it would have taken 150 milligrams to kill him. Propofol is used in hospitals to sedate and anesthetize patients. It is not approved for home use or to treat sleep disorders.

Since this is only a pre trial hearing, prosecutors must only show there is enough evidence to warrant a trial. However, the LA District Attorney is expected to call up to 35 witnesses over the next two weeks, including Kenny Ortega, the producer of ‘This is It’.
