Dr. Conrad Murray Wants to Use a Pig/Piglet for Propofol Experiment

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers want to use a piglet to prove that Propofol can be ingested.

During today's court hearing, Judge Michael Pastor referenced attorney Michael Flanagan's suggestion to introduce evidence of a pig ingesting Propofol.  Flanagan said he intended to use a vet as an expert witness -- presumably to discuss the ingestion of Propofol.

One of the defense's theories is that Michael Jackson fatally ingested Propofol while Dr. Murray was out of the bedroom.

The defense is also floating a theory -- that Michael may have fatally injected himself while Murray stepped out.
