The last witness called by the prosecution was Dr. Steven Shafer anesthesiologist, said Murray has the jury what happened on the night of the death of pop legend acute intoxication of propofol on June 25, 2009 was not supported by scientific evidence.
From the fifth day on the stand, Dr. Shafer was questioned by a lawyer of his previous testimony regarding the amount of anesthetic Propofol Murray could have given Jackson and how they are administered.
Under oath, Shafer concluded that in his opinion, the only plausible explanation for the amount of propofol in the Thriller singer’s system was that it was administered through an intravenous drip continued to enter the system Jackson even after his heart had stopped.
The doctor also said that Murry had given the singer Propofol 40 times he had admitted to the police.
However, he admitted that the defense attorney Ed Chernoff under questioning that he could only speculate on what had happened in the hours before Jackson’s death, and Murray had kept no records.
Later, when questioned by the prosecutor, Shafer again repeated its opinion that there was no way Jackson could have administered the propofol dose that killed him – the complaint Murray team defense.
When asked by Deputy District Attorney David Walgren if “they were unable to find a scenario that could explain the blood levels and self-injection?”
Shafer said, “Correct.”
After Shafer left the stand, the prosecution rested its case, which means the defense can present its case in the innocence of Murray.
