LOS ANGELES (AP) - An anesthesia expert testifying for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death says he believes the singer gave himself a fatal injection of an anesthetic. Dr. Paul White says he doesn't see evidence supporting the prosecution theory that Jackson's doctor was infusing the singer with propofol using an IV. He says the theory isn't supported by evidence found at the scene or in Dr. Conrad Murray's statement to police.
White says the evidence recovered in Jackson's bedroom was more consistent with him receiving the anesthetic through an injection.
A prosecution expert had told jurors he believed Jackson's doctor used an IV drip of propofol and said that was the only way to explain the high levels of the drug found in the singer's body.
