Michael Jackson Murder Trial Kicks Off in LAWorld | September 28, 2011, Wednesday // 15:17| views
A video frame grab of a prosecution slide projected on the screen in the Conrad Murray involuntary manslaughter trial shows the body of Michael Jackson during opening arguments in downtown Los Angeles Superior Court, CA, USA, 27 September 2011.
Tuesday marked the start of the Los Angeles trial of the doctor accused of killing Michael Jackson.
The opening scene on what is being billed as the trial of the century was a disturbing image of Michael Jackson's corpse lying on a bed with tubing over his face.
During the trial's opening statements, an audio file was played for the first time revealing what the King of Pop said while allegedly drugged.
"We have to be phenomenal. When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, 'I've never seen nothing like this in my life. Go. Go. I've never seen nothing like this. Go. It's amazing. He's the greatest entertainer in the world," Jackson said in the audio, according to Huffington Post.
Prosecutors portrayed Dr Conrad Murray, 58, as an incompetent physician who used a dangerous anesthetic without adequate safeguards and whose neglect left the 50-year-old superstar abandoned as he lay dying.
Defense attorneys countered that Jackson caused his own death by taking the drug propofol in a desperate attempt to overcome his chronic inability to sleep after his doctor left the room
