People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray - Kenny Ortega Testifies

Kenny Ortega Testifies  

Kenny Ortega, MJ's producer/director for "This Is It," was the first to testify, stating just days before MJ died, Dr. Murray was upset that Kenny sent MJ home from rehearsal on June 19.  According to Ortega ... Murray felt only he should make such decisions.



According to Ortega ... Dr. Murray said during the June 20 meeting at MJ's home that Michael was "physically and emotionally fine," even though Ortega said MJ had the chills and was not well during the failed rehearsal the day before.

The June 20 meeting at MJ's home is important for prosecutors, who claim it shows Murray did not care about MJ's health.

And Ortega said June 23 and 24 were "two wonderful days of rehearsal" and that MJ was happy and healthy.  The point -- that Jackson wasn't in distress the day before he died, and it was the Propofol that did him in.

During cross examination, Ortega denied he read Michael "the riot act" during the June 20 meeting.

Agreed.  It's like he was at School and needed a sick note from his mum.

Prosecutor: Jackson Was Already Dead

Updated 1/04/11 at 10:15am



Los Angeles County Prosecutor David Walgren began to lay out the case against Dr. Conrad Murray ... saying in his opening statement that Michael Jackson was dead even before paramedics got to MJ's home.

Walgren also told Judge Michael Pastor Murray tried to conceal the fact he had administered Propofol to Jackson.

Walgren said the evidence will show Murray ordered a bodyguard to help him clean up evidence and waited at least 20 minutes before he called 911.

He also pointed out Murray performed CPR incorrectly -- with one hand on his bed, rather than a hard surface.

Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, declined to make an opening statement.

The first witness the prosecution will call is "This Is It" producer/director Kenny Ortega.

I just mentioned this in another thread, but I actually think Kenny's testimony could help Murray, not hurt him.  After Michael was supposedly ill on the 19th, Murray tended to him, resulting in Michael being able to give his best rehearsals on the 23rd and 24th.  Murray claims that Michael's desperation to sleep so he could perform well is what caused him to self inject the lethal dose.  This, in conjunction with Randy Phillips telling Michael that the shows were essentially a do a die situation makes AEG look like the bad guy to me for forcing a sick Michael to go on.

It looks as if this original TMZ article was UPDATED to include the following:

Ortega testified, "He didn't look well at all. Michael was chilled and soft-spoken ... He wasn't in the kind of condition to be at rehearsal."

This was added immediately before the last paragraph.  Not sure how to embed updated article.

So now he's contradicting himself  :| Guess he wasn't expecting that cross examination. I'd LOVE to see these transcripts.

okay so we have 3 ( ;) ) choices.
1. He was "dead" at carolwood
2. He was resuscitated at carolwood with a faint pulse and then taken to UCLA...where he "died"
3. He "died" at UCLA but then brought back to life...but then "died" again


all this confusion, don't it make you want to scream?
