It's Official! Dr. Conrad Murray Will Take the Stand In MJ Murder Trial

dr conrad murray to take stand in mj murder trial

No surprises here.

To recap, the judge in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial over the death of Michael Jackson previously ruled that the jury would NOT be sequestered.

Then on Saturday, we learned that Murray's defense team filed an appeal on that decision.

Now, as we expected, the appeal was denied, and jury selection for the MJ murder trial begins this Thursday in Los Angeles.

Dr. Conrad Murray tried VERY hard to get out of it, but he will in fact take the stand in the trial, and he'll have to do it alone because an LA judge has ruled that MJ's other doctor Arnold Klein "could not be called to testify."

Here's what Dr. Murray's lawyer Edward Chernoff had to say about it:

"Dr. Murray is, naturally, devastated. He sees forces aligned against him and does not know why he’s not allowed to put on a defense."

We're just glad to see things finally moving forward with this trial. Soon Michael's family and loved ones will be able to get closure once and for all.

    Re: Edgenet – People like u need to get a life. Do u not grasp reality? MJ did not and Would never hurt a child, Ne was Proven Innocent!!!! Thats like some saying U molested a child even after u were Proven Innocent, U wouldn't like ppl running their mouths talken Smack like that. So don't do it to him. Murray is Guilty and it will be proven that way.

    I can not wait till the Jury convicts him and I know in my heart they will find him guilty because its 100% true.
    He's gonna try to lie through his teeth, but it's not gonna work. He knows he messed up. Thats why he booked it away from the Hospital the way he did when MJ was pronounced Gone. But in my oppinion 4 years is just not long enough. He needs life.
    Just watch his facial expressions while he's on the stand. He'll show he's lying. I hope to God they teleivise it so I can watch his butt go down.
    I am here because I Love Michael and always will and I support The Jackson Family with Getting Justice For Michael. Maybe he will finally be able to RIP once his killer is behind bars.Miss u and Love u MJ 4ever and always.
