Michael Jackson’s young children and family members including mother Katherine Jackson and sister Janet Jackson are set to be called as witnesses at Dr. Conrad Murray’s upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial.
The controversial physician stands accused of administering a deadly powerful dose of the anaesthetic Propofol which led to the MJ’s death in June, 2009. Murray has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and is due to stand trial in May, and a document, obtained by TMZ.com, has revealed new details about proceedings.
In the papers, more than 100 potential witnesses are listed – including MJ’s three children Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Blanket. Other family members set to take the stand include Jackson’s mum and dad, Katherine and Joe, and siblings Jackie, Janet, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Randy, Rebbie and Tito.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor is still searching for impartial jurors to hear the case, and the legal paper also reveals potential jurors face extensive quizzing of their opinions about Jackson, celebrities and medication before being appointed. The whole trial is big waste of time – Dr. Murray is guilty as charged and that is it.
