Toldja so!  Dr. Conrad Murray will not take the stand ... the defense just confirmed.

As we previously reported, there was a split between Murray's lawyers Ed Chernoff and J. Michael Flanagan over whether Murray should testify.

Chernoff believed Murray would have gotten crushed in cross-examination -- but Flanagan didn't think Murray could win over the jury without giving his side of the story.

After the dust settled, Chernoff prevailed. So Murray will keep his mouth shut.
