Lawyer in Michael Jackson Trial Says Singer Committed Suicide Over Finances
The lawyer for Dr. Conrad Murray, the man accused of administering the drugs that killed Michael Jackson, is claiming that his client is an innocent man.
The AP reports that Murray”s lawyer, Edward Chernoff, is arguing that it was Jackson himself and not Murray that ended the King of Pop”s life.
In a pre-trial hearing, Chernoff put forth the theory that Jackson was so distraught over his declining empire and deep debt that he took his own life, and asked for access to Jackson”s financial records to gather proof.
Prosecutors slammed Chernoff, claiming that his allegations were part of a ploy to defame Jackson.
The judge denied Chernoff”s request on grounds that it was an unnecessary invasion of Jackson”s privacy.
The court is still screening jurors for the upcoming trial.
