Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray Ordered Trays Full Of Propofol

DR. Conrad Murray ordered 100 vials of the powerful anaesthetic that killed Michael Jackson within just one month, a court has heard.
Jackson's personal physician is currently on trial for involuntary manslaughter, accused of administering the fatal dose of Propofol which cost the King of Pop his life on 25 June, 2009.
The sixth day of the trial got underway on Tuesday (04Oct11) when jurors at Los Angeles Superior Court heard pharmacist Tim Lopez testify that Murray had been ordering the surgical drug by the tray load.
Lopez told the jury the medic first approached him to provide prescription creams to treat vitiligo, a skin-lightening condition Jackson suffered from, although Murray did not reveal the name of his patient.
At the start of 2009, the doctor began to make enquiries about the price and availability of Propofol - and he placed his first order for a total of 35 vials on 6 April (09).
Murray returned to Lopez within the same month and ordered a further four trays of the drug, containing 65 vials. Both drug orders were delivered to the Santa Monica, California apartment Murray shared with his girlfriend Nicole Alvarez.
Alvarez, who shares a son with Murray, also took the stand to give evidence on Tuesday, revealing she spoke to the embattled doctor while he was en route to the Ucla hospital with a lifeless Jackson.
She told the court, "I remember him telling me that he was on the way to the hospital in the ambulance with Mr. Jackson, and for me not to be alarmed. He didn't want me to be worried."
Two of Murray's ex-girlfriends, Michelle Bella and Sade Anding, were also called to testify. Bella revealed she had received a text message and a voicemail from Murray on the morning of Jackson's death, while Anding recalled speaking with the doctor on the phone at the point he realised his famous client had gone into cardiac arrest.
