Dr. Murray: Don't Show MJ Autopsy Pics in Court

4/7/2011 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray is begging the judge to ban Michael Jackson's autopsy photos from being shown in court during his manslaughter trial.

0407_mj_conrad_bn_getty

In a motion filed today in LA County Superior Court ... Murray's legal team argues the photos "will only unnecessarily and unfairly prejudice the jury against Dr. Murray."

They also claim the photos will not help the jury determine the cause of Michael's death.

On the juicier side ... Murray's attorneys also filed a motion to exclude testimony or evidence dealing with the doc's visits to strip clubs, the women he met there, and the amount of money he spent in those clubs.

They also want Murray's extramarital affairs left out of the proceedings.

MJ harmed himself for many years, til he stopped caring. he tried to promote how wonderful he was with fake wives and thought he felt better with unethical doctors, and dermatologist klein. everyone could see his exhaustion and embarrassment when he twisted his nose off in the early 1990s. he drugged up because he felt awful. his father and BROTHERS WERE LEECHES. katherine was a greedy poser. la toya lied about him and he depended on boys/insane strangers to boost his self-esteem.

well i guess murrays lawyer figure people will forget mj is dead if they dont show the pictures....
they seem to want to throw dirt at mj, why not show the strip club stuff and all the women he had to support.it seems to me he was the one under pressure to make sure mj went to rehearsals to insure his own paycheck...
michael had his talent to make sure he could make an income, seems murray only had his prescription pad.

ok. why was no other millionaire star chasing for a deadly drug, and dying due to this habitual, manipulative behavior?
mj knew this danger ever since he puked painkillers during 'stressful concert tours'. he knew his own body since 1958.
no one, but katherine, alejandra and jermaine/randy, begged for tons of money and reunion concerts. janet was planning on singing in reunion concerts.

Phantom of the Opera, I can't thank you enough for bringing light hearted humour on this blog. I really look forward to your links...Keep up the great Job!!!!

Regarding Crack Murray, he's want to destroy MJ image and protect his, don't think this is going to work. He didn't care about his own children and wife, you think he cared about MJ dying? The prosecution should have a field day bringing this crack down. No brainer, Below standard of care was provided on June 25th 2009!!!! All days prior didn't kill MJ.

Sorry, dude. you really were drinking with strippers the night MJ was rehearsing and died the next morning, and then you sounded so out of it on the phone call the next morning because you had been partying the night before. This guy is repulsive. He has the nerve to ask for evidence to not be introduced. It all ties into his behavior that night and into the morning.

This is an open and shut case. The doc is GUILTY on ALL counts plus some they didn't even charge him with! Michael is only guilty of overpaying and trusting an idiot to care for his health.

This site is one big advertisement for the DVD. Not much info you can't find elsewhere. Big disappointment.

The defence does not want the autopsy or death photos shown because they know it will be damaging to Murray.


Autopsy photos are used in court all the time when a murder has occurred. I'm thinking Judge Pastor will allow them to be used if they are needed.


All this will be determined at a hearing scheduled for April 21.
