Jackson trial expert: Murray committed egregious violation
Anesthesiologist Steven Shafer took the stand for the prosecution in the Michael Jackson trial on Wednesday, October 19, and said the pop star's personal doctor Conrad Murray had "virtually none of the safeguards for sedation" in place.
The British Telegraph reports that medical expert Dr Steven Shafer told jurors the lack of proper medical equipment and the absence of notes and medical records by Murray, along with a breakdown of the patient-doctor relationship were factors in the death.
Murray was acting more like Jackson's employee than a physician who should have rejected the singer's requests for the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid, Dr Shafer said.
