Michael Jackson's personal physician and charged with negligence in the death of the star, Conrad Murray was the second hearing this.
Michael Jackson died of a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol mixed with other drugs

The medical emergencies attended Michael Jackson on his arrival at the Hospital of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) on the day of his death said on Monday (3) in his testimony in court there was "no explanation" that justify the sudden death of the King of Pop.

Richelle Cooper said that Jackson arrived at the medical center "clinically dead", but continued trying to revive him for almost an hour and a half to make sure I had done everything that was in reach, and that the paramedics who responded to the his mansion had proceeded correctly.

The doctor said that those dramatic moments of June 25, 2009 there was no chance of saving the life of Michael Jackson.

"I personally have never felt that pulse," said Richelle, who, however, claimed that one of his team members said they found signs of life in the artist, although this has not been proven by the monitors that recorded heart rate.

Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest at around noon (at local time) on June 25 at his home in Los Angeles, where he was met by an emergency team that arrived in an ambulance before 12:30.

After half an hour of attempts to revive him, they agreed in a telephone conversation with Richelle was necessary to declare that the singer's death at 12h57.

The then Michael Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in this case, but asked that his patient was transferred to hospital. The singer's death was not final until certified sites 14h26 that day.

The medical emergency Murray asked about the status of Jackson and his medication, to know what would be the most appropriate treatment.

According to the testimony of Richelle, Murray indicated that Jackson was a man with no serious health problems that he was "exhausted" the days of rehearsals for his upcoming shows, why he had prescribed two doses of the tranquilizer lorazepam. For Richelle, the response was insufficient to determine the reasons why Jackson was in that situation.

"There was an explanation of why Michael Jackson was dead," said the doctor, who said that Murray did not tell him who had also applied the anesthetic propofol to the "King of Pop" to help you sleep.

The autopsy determined that the artist died of an overdose of drugs, especially propofol, despite claims that Cooper was "unlikely to have done something different that would change the outcome."

Conrad Murray declared himself innocent of the charges, and may be sentenced to up to four years in prison. After Richelle, the prosecution called to testify Edward Dixon, an engineer at telecom company AT & T to review the list of phone calls recorded by Murray on June 25.

The journey continued with testimony from Thao Nguyen, a cardiologist at UCLA who was part of group of doctors who answered the singer.

Nguyen confirmed that Murray, who appeared "devastated", said he had not administered propofol to Jackson, and he feared it was "too late" to save the singer when he arrived at the medical center.

The prosecution of the case believes that Murray, 58, ran to the artist a dose of medication that would have caused his death in a situation of "gross negligence".

The defense maintains that it was Jackson himself who, because of its perceived dependence on the substance, would have taken drugs when Murray was absent.
