Dr. Conrad Murray’s attorneys will be in court Wednesday, RadarOnline.com has learned.
They will be asking the judge for extra testing on the fluid in two syringes and an IV bag taken from Michael Jackson’s mansion the night he died. Murray’s lawyers want the tests to see how much of the anesthetic propofol the syringes contain.
Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter for allegedly injecting Jackson with the drugs the night he died. A preliminary hearing on the charges in scheduled to start next Tuesday. Murray’s attorneys say the fluid testing is urgent before the evidence deteriorates. Prosecutors are asking the doctor’s attorneys be given only half the residue in the syringes and will only agree to the testing if it’s done correctly.
Jackson died in June 2009 of cardiac arrest at age 50. It was just a month before he was to begin his “This is It” comeback concert tour in London.
