LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former girlfriend of the doctor charged in the death of Michael Jackson says he called her the morning of the signer’s death and she heard commotion in the background.

Sade Anding testified Friday she was talking to Dr. Conrad Murray but at one point realized he wasn’t paying attention to her. She says she heard coughing and mumbling but didn’t recognize the voice as Murray.

Anding says she stayed on the line for five to six minutes, but Murray never got back on the phone.

Prosecutors called Anding to testify during a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence for Murray to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter. He has pleaded not guilty.

Phone records show Murray called Anding at 11:51 a.m. then called Jackson’s personal assistant. 911 was dialed at 12:21 p.m.
