Dr. Conrad Murray, who treated Michael Jackson before his passing, once again showed his intention not to testify in the King of Pop wrongful death trial. The disgraced doctor left a threatening voice message to a friend, asking both AEG Live and the singer's family to leave him alone.
"Please stop. If you don't, let this serve as my final warning to both sides. Don't incite me to testify. Consider this as an imminent nuclear warning. Enough is enough," he said in a recording shared by TMZ. Murray apparently refuses to get involved in the trial because he does not want to incriminate himself in the legal proceedings.
It was not the first time Murray left a message saying that he did not want to testify. Earlier this year, he left similar voice message saying, "If I am compelled to speak [in court] I can cause one party or the other to experience the impact of an immediate seismic shock." He added that his statement might bring "a total and complete debacle" to both sides.
Michael Jackson's mother Katherine and his three children sued concert promotor AEG Live for $1 billion in damage, claiming that the promotor neglected the singer's health during preparation of "This Is It" tour. Murray is currently serving 4-year jail sentence after he administered high dose of Propofol to help the singer sleep.
