Dr - Murray's Defence Challenged By Cocktail Waitress He Called As Jackson Lay Dying

The woman DR. CONRAD MURRAY phoned when he realised MICHAEL JACKSON was dying has broken her silence about the fateful day, revealing the medic "didn't sound like himself" and was clearly troubled.
Former cocktail waitress Sade Anding, who Murray was pursuing romantically at the time, is set to testify for the prosecution at the doctor's upcoming trial for involuntary manslaughter. He stands accused of administering the dose of the drug Propofol that killed the King of Pop on 25 June, 2009.
Murray, who denies the charge, told investigators he was talking to someone on his cell phone for five minutes before he noticed Jackson was in serious trouble.
But, in a candid TV interview with breakfast show Good Morning America on Thursday (03Feb11), Anding contradicts the medic's version of events, claiming he hesitated when she asked him if something was wrong during their phone conversation on the day Jackson died.
Anding says, "He called me out of the blue. He sounded like something was wrong. He didn't sound like himself to me at all.
"I was like, 'Hey, what's up? I haven't talked to you in a while...' And it sounded like he wanted to say something and I wish I would have just shut up and let him finish. He just said, 'Well...' and then he took forever... and then I realised, he wasn't even on the phone. I'm like, 'Hello, hello?'
"It sounded like he was in his car or something, and I heard coughing and mumbling of voices. He never got back on the phone and then I hung up. I kept calling and calling and I kept texting him and then I never heard from him. And then that's when... I felt like something was wrong."
Anding pieced together the tragic events when she heard the news about Jackson's death - and she knew police would come knocking: "I knew as soon as I heard what happened, it clicked to me like, 'Oh God, I'm in it!'"
She reached out to Murray when cops first approached her, but he refused to discuss the case with her because he was paranoid their phones had been tapped.
They eventually lost contact, but Anding will never forget their telling phone call - because she feels partly responsible for keeping Murray from performing his duties and saving Jackson's life.
Fighting back tears, she says, "It made me sad. I felt like it was my fault. But I really felt like, if he wouldn't have called me, then maybe all that stuff that happened wouldn't have happened."
However, she is confident Murray is not guilty of the charge against him. When asked if she thought the doctor was capable of manslaughter, she responds: "No, not at all."

Even if he didnt do it intentionally (ofcourse I know he didnt do it intentionally), he still did anyway. And that is why it is called "INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER". Dr Murray is guilty as charged
