Conrad Murray’s Defense Will Argue Michael Jackson Committed Suicide

Well, this certainly won't help Conrad Murray's popularity levels: According to prosecutor David Walgren, the lawyers defending Michael Jackson's doctor in his involuntary manslaughter trial will try to argue that MJ was responsible for his own death, by purposely injecting a massive amount of the anesthetic Propofol on the night of his passing. Murray is arguing that he only provided Jackson with 25 milligrams of the drug. Says the AP: "There have been suggestions that during a brief period when Murray left the room Jackson, possibly desperate for sleep, could have injected himself with more of the Propofol." [AP]
