Conrad Murray manslaughter trial begins

    Prosecution in Conrad Murray’s manslaughter case has kicked off the trial by presenting some startling evidence against the disgraced cardiologist.

    After two delays, the trial against Conrad is finally underway. He stands accused of killing the King of Pop Michael Jackson in June 2009.

    Attorney David Walgren argues that Conrad Murray kept Michael so heavily sedated that the performer could not speak. To illustrate his point, David presented  audio evidence that was recored in May 2009, which exhibits Michael’s severely slurred speech.

    The evidence was recorded just weeks before Michael passed away. David argued that despite Michael’s clearly impaired functions, Conrad still ordered propofol and another sedative just two days later.

    The pop icon’s speech is so hard to understand in the clip that subtitles were provided for people in the courtroom. The text of his audio reveals that he was sharing his unrealized expectations of his shows for This is It.

    “When people leave my [This is It movie],” he’s heard stating, “I want them to say, ‘I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life … He’s the greatest entertainer in the world.”

    The voice in the audio is unrecognizable as Michael’s because it lacks the gentle, youthful quality that he presented to the public. Listen.
