Murray’s Defense Attorneys Call Character Witnesses To Testify

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Defense attorneys representing Dr. Conrad Murray called a series of character witnesses to the stand.

Murray is accused of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s 2009 death.

One of Murray’s former patients testified that he is caring and not motivated by money.

Gerry Causey says he is still friends with Murray, who treated him for a heart attack 11 years ago.

Murray was visibly upset during the testimony, wiping his eyes as his attorney questioned the witness about his treatment.

The trial recessed for the day around noon and is expected to resume Thursday with two medical experts taking the stand, the defense’s final witnesses.

He is accused of administering a deadly dose of propofol to Jackson on June 25, 2009.
