Dr. Conrad Murray, who is on trial for the death of Michael Jackson, has gotten a delay due to a medical expert's father passing away.
The trial will resume on Wednesday.
Anesthesiology expert Dr. Steven Shafer, will not be able to testify because of the death of his father. Shafer, who briefly testified before Thursday’s session was concluded, was slated to testify Monday that Murray's use of propofol was negligent in his care of the late King of Pop, using scientific explanations to support his idea.
Apparently when the trial is back on, his testimony will last an entire day!
We're definitely sorry for his loss, and we can't expect it to be easy to just pick back up with your testimony after something like this happens. We can only hope he has the strength to do so!
