Michael Jackson Manslaughter Prelim - 30 Witnesses

12/28/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned more than 2 dozen witnesses will testify at  Dr. Conrad Murray's preliminary hearing in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

Sources say the prelim will last roughly 2 weeks and approximately 30 witnesses will be called.

We're told there won't be a "Perry Mason" moment -- instead, prosecutors will lay out their case, piece by piece, to show Dr. Murray acted recklessly by medicating Michael with Propofol and other drugs at his home the day he died.

Sources say the witnesses include various medical experts, as well as 3 LAPD detectives who investigated the case.

And, we're told, prosecutors will present more evidence than in a typical manslaughter case, because the legal theory here is novel -- that a doctor committed a homicide in the treatment of a patient.

WillOtheWisp - I am sorry you have so much hate in your heart. You seem to have a bit of a brain to be able to do some research . . .

Too bad you can't appreciate God enough for giving you this gift and use it honestly and productively to TELL THE TRUTH!

Again - I ask you another . . . what has Michael ever done to YOU?

I think MJ was in the hands of a conspiracy to kill him, so the doctor CM is just a scapegoat. I also believe that justice will not be made.

The nimble brain 'OhWell" (a likely name for he/she whatever it is, 'oh, well is probably the best thought process the 'it' can ever come up with). But....my point is, 'it' is all over the Michael Jackson blogs and sites, hmmmmmmmmmm...makes you wonder, I think it is love.

Sadly I believe MJ had a serious drug problem. I don't feel one man should be held responsible for his death.

Annie I agree with you. Just because the autopsy report doesn´t show it, it´s a fact he had a drug problem at least some years before his death and of course the autopsy would not show signs of drugs from years ago.
I talked with a close friend of Michael by facebook and he said me that:

"Michael was flawed, he was an addict who demanded drugs and a celebrity who used his fame and power to get what he wanted and if one person didn't want to help him; 5 others were waiting to give him what he wanted. While I abhor what Dr. Murray did, most people don't know that Michael overdosed before on drugs and that if it wasn't Dr. Murray it would have eventually been another doctor or combinations of doctors that would kill Michael. It was destined to happen or at least he was destined to overdose on medications whether or not it killed him would have just been a factor of what drugs and how much of them. Michael was already in a bad situation for many years..."

OMG where have all you people been living? Under a rock?

There is NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that Michael had been abusing any medications in the few years or months prior to his death.


MiaUndercover

When and where did this supposed overdose occur? Oh someone on Facebook told you this so you know for a fact it is true?

Whatever...

Unless Michael Jackson told murray to give him lethal amounts of propofol, and then leave him unattended for several minutes so he can talk on the phone with his girlfriend, then you can't say it's his fault, or "he killed himself". I read the autopsy report, and it was concluded that Michael's death was the result of recklessness, not drug abuse..Sorry but any doctor who performs CPR on a bed seriously needs to go back to medical school.

Why doesn't anybody get that this was all starated with ass hole D.A. Sneddon. He's involved in this and I'm surprised that nobody is looking his direction. He's too quite and wanted Michael for no good reason other than he wanted the property of neverland ranch for a vineyard and lost his case, so he went after him again and failed again. Does anybody see where I'm going with this? The best way to hide is in front of everyone where they least suspect you. Somebvody needs to start screaming out loud and get the attention out there so that they can go after him too. last time I look Sneddon up, I found him to be a part of the kkk and one of the secret societies that hate blacks period. Retired or not, he's just as responsible and guity as Murray, The first allegations started in 1993 to bring Michael from such a high rank in the world and they didn't like it so of coarse they made up the allegations but that didn't work. And if they have been after Michael to kil him, and it took them 17 years to get him then obviousy 17 years ago, included D.A.Sneddon, like dahhhhh! Wake up everybody and don't let this man get away from justice. Now they're targeting Janet. Start paying attention!! When LaToya mentioned that there are others involved, it was not a bluff or a made up story. Find Sneddon and bring him to justice too. I really can't believe some people. He's a souless bastard that needs to be put away. And recently there was an attempt on Michael's chidren's lives as predicted through a reliable source, how do we know that Sneddon isn't involved with these other shady characters that tried to hurt the chidren? How convenient that the other driver got the hell out of there very fast as to not be seen. Get a clue and open your eyes people. If others are involved then that would include Sneddon. End of story..........
