London: Dr. Conrad Murray ordered more than 250 vials of powerful anaesthetic Propofol in the months before his client Michael Jackson’s death, a judge was told.

A court heard that Murray had the anaesthetics sent from Las Vegas to Santa Monica, California - allegedly addressed to ex-stripper Nicole Alvarez, mum of his baby son, reports a dai;y.

Coroners ruled the King of Pop died from acute Propofol intoxication in June, 2009.

Murray is accused of giving a lethal dose of the anaesthetic and a cocktail of other sedatives. He denies involuntary manslaughter.
