LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Dr. Conrad Murray is asking the judge in his criminal case to deny Michael Jackson’s family full restitution, on grounds that the popstar caused his own death, according to a TMZ report.
Murray reportedly filed legal documents Monday, asking for evidence that the defense never received during the trial. Murray claims the evidence could show that Jackson gave himself the fatal dose of Propofol.
Murray’s lawyer, Michael Flanagan, argues that it is appropriate to consider the victim’s responsibility for his own demise.
According to the report, the prosecution is asking for $100 million in restitution.
