Lawyers for Michael Jackson's doctor have called for the testing of syringes and IV bags found at the King of Pop's rented mansion on the day he died. The defense attorneys raced to court in Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 26 stating evidence they had planned to use at Dr. Conrad Murray's upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial had deteriorated and could no longer be used in the case.

The cardiologist's attorneys claimed the liquid in one of the syringes had turned to salt, according to the Associated Press. Judge Michael Pastor refused to allow a specialist to determine the quantities of substances in two syringes and the IV bag after consulting with prosecutors, who revealed they hadn't been made aware of the request for evidence testing until immediately before the hearing.

Dr. Murray's trial will begin in January 2011.

this is crazy - surely to goodness the police had it all tested in the beginning?! are we supposed to believe there were no forensic tests done? isn't that standard procedure?

So they waited til evidence was ruined then asked for it to be tested and they will claim they can't get a fair trial because the evidence is bad
