LOS ANGELES (AP) — Testimony has resumed in the involuntary manslaughter case against the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death.
Prosecutors called an executive from a company that manufactures a device that measures pulse and oxygen levels in the blood. Authorities recovered the $275 device after Jackson’s death.
Nonin Medical executive Bob Johnson told jurors Friday that the model had no audible alarm and is not intended to be used for continuous monitoring of patients.
Prosecutors have said Dr. Conrad Murray lacked the proper monitoring and life-saving equipment when he was giving Jackson doses of the surgical anesthetic propofol.
Murray has pleaded not guilty.
