LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Testimony has ended in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s personal physician.
Defense attorneys and prosecutors said Tuesday they have called their final witnesses after 22 days of testimony.
The final witnesses presented to jurors were a pair of anesthesia experts who had different theories on how Jackson died unexpectedly on June 25, 2009.
The panel did not hear from defendant Dr. Conrad Murray, who told a judge he would not testify in his own defense.
Authorities contend Murray gave Jackson a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol, but defense attorneys claim Jackson gave himself the fatal dose.
Murray has pleaded not guilty and could face up to four years behind bars and the loss of his medical license if convicted.
