The trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, has been delayed once again to give the defense time to study new lab test results that the prosecution claims to be proof that the pop star did not ingest a fatal overdose of the sedative propofol.
Testing was ordered after Murray's defense contended that Jackson had swallowed eight tablets of lorazepam when trying to sleep on the day of his death in June 2009. The results show a smaller amount of lorazepam in his stomach than what would be consistent with oral consumption of the pills.
Murray's trial had been delayed twice previously in the past week, first when the prosecution's final witness had to attend a medical convention, and again when the same witness's father died.
