A cardiologist testifying at the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor said Wednesday that Conrad Murray’s treatment of Jackson was “unethical” and that there were multiple extreme deviations from proper standards of care that he felt made Murray responsible for the singer’s death.

A coroner’s office investigator denied a defense allegation that she made a “substantial number of mistakes” while collecting and recording evidence from Michael Jackson’s house after his death.

Los Angeles Coroner’s Office investigator Elissa Fleak began the day Thursday at Conrad Murray’s trial by continuing to identify pieces of evidence collected from Jackson’s home. She also testified that medical records provided by Murray regarding his treatment of Jackson did not include anything about the day he died or the prior three months.

Doctor’s Girlfriends Testify About Day Michael Jackson Died

Three girlfriends of Conrad Murray took the stand Tuesday as prosecutors tried to portray the doctor as distracted by his personal life when he should have been monitoring his patient, Michael Jackson, to whom he was administering extremely powerful sedatives.

Testimony zeroed in on calls made on June 25, 2009, the day Jackson died from “acute propofol intoxication,” according to his autopsy. The judge limited the prosecution’s ability to question the women about their personal relationships with Murray outside the context of that date.

“I Had No Childhood,” Michael Jackson Says In Recording Played At Doctor’s Trial

Six weeks before Michael Jackson’s death, his doctor recorded him rambling in a slow, slurred voice about the importance of his planned “This Is It” concert series and the pain of his lost childhood, prosecutors alleged Wednesday.

In a four-minute recording recovered from Conrad Murray’s iPhone by DEA forensic computer examiners, Jackson was heard talking about building “Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital” with the proceeds from the concerts. Prosecutor David Walgren had played a portion of it in his opening statement, but jurors listened to the whole tape Wednesday during the testimony of forensic examiner Stephen Marx.

An emergency room doctor who testified Friday that Michael Jackson was “clinically dead” when he arrived at UCLA Medical Center on June 25, 2009 returned to the stand Monday morning to provide more details about the treatment Jackson received at the hospital.

Dr. Richelle Cooper said that she decided at 2:26 pm to pronounce Jackson dead, but she had never felt a pulse during the entire time she was working on him. Cooper testified that she felt comfortable pronouncing him dead much earlier while in radio communication with the paramedics who were still treating him at his home, but Conrad Murray insisted on not giving up at that point and claimed he found a pulse.
