Michael Jackson - Jackson Family Opposed Michael Death Picture

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine was "very upset" when a photo of her late son's lifeless body was shown on the opening day of DR. Conrad Murray's trial, because the famous family asked for the picture to be kept private.
The case got underway in Los Angeles on Tuesday (27Sep11), and Katherine, along with her husband Joe and several of their children, were in court to witness the proceedings.
Among the evidence presented to jurors was an eerie cell phone chat between the Thriller legend and his personal physician weeks before his 2009 death, with Jackson slurring his words in the tape.
Also shown was a shocking photograph of the star's dead body on a gurney, which prompted Katherine Jackson to burst into tears, and lawyer Brian Oxman reveals the famous family was stunned the snap was shown in court.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "(Katherine) is very upset. We have spoken among the family that we did not want this released to the public. It is not right."
Jackson's sister La Toya also sent a message to her Twitter.com fans telling them she found the photo "heart-wrenching"
Murray stands accused of administering the drug which cost Jackson his life and he has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
