Michael Jackson's Rehearsal Footage Requested for Trial Evidence

April 19, 2011 (9:08 pm) GMT
A Los Angeles County District Attorney has filed a motion to allow Michael Jackson's final rehearsal footage to be used as evidence against Michael's physician in his upcoming manslaughter trial.

The D.A.'s official believes the concert video footage, taken on the days leading up to 's death in June 2009, and included in his "" movie, will highlight the late star's state of mind and support the prosecution's claims that the superstar was "happy and excited for the future", and not looking to take his own life, reports TMZ.com.

Dr. Conrad Murray's defence team recently suggested Michael Jackson may have purposefully overdosed on powerful anaesthetic Propofol. The doctor is accused of administering the fatal dose. Dr. Conrad Murray has maintained he is innocent of all charges.

The prosecution team has also asked the judge overseeing the trial to allow photos from Michael Jackson's autopsy to be used as case evidence.

The trial is scheduled to begin next month.
