MJ’s son Prince to be key witness in dad’s manslaughter trial
London: Michael Jackson’s son, Prince Michael, will give key evidence in the manslaughter trial of his dad’s doctor, it has been revealed.
Prince, 14, will be the star prosecution witness against heart specialist Dr Conrad Murray, according to The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
“Both the DA’s office and his relatives believe Prince Michael’s evidence is crucial to the case against Dr Murray and could even blow his entire defence out of the water,” The Daily Star quoted a family source as saying.
“It’s going to be one hell of an ordeal for the youngster but he’s a brave boy and he’s ready,” the source added.
According to Jackson’s defense team, they are going to claim that he died of a fatal overdose and not from the regular dosage of anaesthetic propofol administered by his doctor.
Prince is likely to give evidence early next month after jury selection, which resumes this week.
