Michael Jackson - Jackson's Mother Sobs At Court Hearing

MICHAEL JACKSON's mother KATHERINE broke down in court on Wednesday (05Jan11) and wept as details of her son's death were relived as part of DR. CONRAD MURRAY's manslaughter case.
The King of Pop's physician is in court in California this week (beg03Jan11) as officials attempt to decide whether there is enough evidence for him to stand trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
A number of witnesses have taken the stand to testify about the day of Jackson's death back in 2009, when he suffered a fatal cardiac arrest brought on by a drug overdose, and the singer's family members, including his mother Katherine and sisters Janet and LaToya, have been attending the hearings in Los Angeles.
A session on Wednesday (05Jan10) saw testimony from paramedic Richard Senneff, who described the scene that greeted him when he arrived at Jackson's home on the day of his death (25Jun09).
Senneff claimed he did not recognise the pop superstar and thought he was dealing with a seriously ill "hospice patient". He also recalled dealing with Murray, and insisted the medic's version of events "just didn't add up".
But it was testimony from a member of Jackson's security team, Alberto Alvarez, which provoked an emotional response from the late star's mother, who broke down in tears as the bodyguard recalled hearing the singer's daughter Paris crying out "Daddy!" as she rushed into the bedroom where her father lay dying.
The Jackson family matriarch was seen wiping away her tears as Alvarez told how the little girl sobbed as she was ushered out of the room.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to the involuntary manslaughter charge.

OMG!! What a monster Murray really is. First we hear that he called Prince up to the room for what reason i couldnt understand. And now to hear that Paris stood there watching her father pass or even she her father already gone. My heart goes out to all the Jackson family members. No family should have to deal with this tragic as horrible as it happen.Why cant the courts upgrade his charges to 2nd degree murder? He was negligent in his care of Michael and with out thought took his life as if it didnt mean a thing to anyone let alone his three beautiful children. Murray continues to walk the streets with his family enjoying life. What about Michael's children and what they can no longer have in their lives their dad. I read a case not long ago about a woman who killed her father with an overdoes as just like Murray did with Michael and she is facing the death penality. Why becuz of different states and different laws. Not right Murray should get more than 2 years or even less for taking Michael's life. Millions of fans are still hurting over his lose. Michael has given this world so much and in a split second this man wipes it away and keeps on living his life to the fullest. I wish that his trail would be on television so we the fans can see the whole store not just part threw the media. May God and Michael continue to watch over and protect his family especially at this time. My prayers are with the whole Jackson Family..Please let the justice system do right by us all..

I have tears running down my face. I feel like he is dying all over again, and am re-living the pain and grief. However, i continue to grieve for Michael every day. His death changed my life, and i am in just as much pain now as i was then, maybe more, because i have gotten closer to him. I knew this was going to be painful, but i am glad that we finally get to hear the "facts" surrounding Michael's demise. I hope that after hearing the evidence, that the prosecution and the DA determine not only enough evidence to take it to trial, but to charge him with a more serious crime. I do not believe that Dr. Murray intentionally killed Mr. Jackson, BUT I DO BELIEVE he was blatantly negligent in no many areas, and he knew it. I cannot imagine a Dr. that did not know how to perform CPR. He was his job to make sure he had knowledge of the consequences of administering this dangerous drug, and how to remedy any situation should it occur, and have the equipment to do so. By not being capable, he is GUILTY, and should be punished. I suggest we hook his ass up to "propofol" and give him a "good night's sleep", for about "the rest of his life". Justice must be served.
