Dr. Conrad Murray‘s lawyer Ed Chernoff told jurors during his closing argument that the embattled cardiologist was “just a little fish in a big dirty pond,” attempting to convey that Michael Jackson was responsible for his own death, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
“Michael Jackson went into his bathroom and took Lorazepam,” and then died later that morning, and nothing could be done to save the King of Pop, Chernoff maintained.
“Dr. Murray did not kill Michael Jackson,” Chernoff said.
Prosecutor David Walgren addressed the doctor simply as “Conrad Murray” during his final closing remarks. “Conrad Murray is responsible for the death of Michael Jackson,” he said.
The jury will begin jury deliberations tomorrow morning, after a foreperson is chosen. If found guilty of the single involuntary manslaughter charge, Dr. Murray could be sentenced to four years in state prison.
