Michael Jackson - Prosecutors Wants Doctors Banned From Murray Manslaughter Trial
Prosecutors intent on putting Michael Jackson's physician behind bars for administering the anaesthetic that killed the King of Pop have urged the judge overseeing the upcoming manslaughter trial to ban the testimony of the tragic pop superstar's other doctors.
They claim doctors that were also treating Jackson up to his death in June, 2009, bear no relevance to the trial.
Dr. Conrad Murray's defence lawyers maintain their client was one of many medics who prescribed drugs to Jackson and any one of them could be responsible for the dead star's apparent addiction to painkillers and powerful anaesthetics.
Prosecutors have also asked Judge Michael Pastor to block testimony related to Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial in Santa Barbara, California.
Tmz.com reports suggest Steve Robel, a Santa Barbara County Sheriff's investigator at the molestation trial, is on the defence team's witness list.
The prosecutors insist the 2005 trial has no relevance to Jackson's death.
