The trial of Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ singer Michael Jackson resumes Monday, as the court will take Friday off for a long weekend.
On Thursday, UCLA sleep expert Dr. Nader Kamangar testified that Dr. Conrad Murray’s practices in prescribing and administering a cocktail of drugs to the late Michael Jackson were “unethical, disturbing and beyond comprehension.
“To summarize, Mr. Jackson was receiving very inappropriate therapy in a home setting, receiving very potent therapies without monitoring,” Kamangar said, noting Murray gave the Billie Jean singer a mix of diazepam, lorazepam and midazolam over a 10-hour time frame on June 25, 2009, the day he died.
Kamangar said “this cocktail was a recipe for disaster,” and when mixed with propofol could “absolutely” have been fatal.
The trial is taking a day off Friday because Kamangar is being honored in Chicago and couldn’t make today’s session.
