Prosecutors Request Permission to Tell Tales About Michael Jackson Doctor's Love Life

April 14, 2011 (9:00 pm) GMT
Prosecutors hoping to put Michael Jackson's former physician behind bars have filed papers in Los Angeles urging the doctor's trial judge to let them tell tales about his personal life.

The legal team at odds with Dr. Conrad Murray want jurors at his upcoming manslaughter trial to hear details about his relationships with three women he called and texted during the final moments of 's life.

In the documents filed by Deputy District Attorney David Walgren on Thursday, April 14, he insists, "The details of these relationships are relevant to show Dr. Murray's level of inattentiveness and distraction while he was responsible for the care of Mr. Michael Jackson."

Walgren claims the doctor's relationships with the women were personal and social and will "impeach" a statement Murray made to police about events leading up to the pop star's death.

Murray's defence lawyer insists any information about the doctor's extra-marital affairs was irrelevant and would only "inflame the passions of the jury".

Murray is accused of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol to Michael Jackson. The doctor has pleaded not guilty.
