The district attorney in the manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor wants to play video of the singer’s last two rehearsals for his “This Is It” tour as part of the case, TMZ.com reported.
The D.A. filed a motion Tuesday asking that the rehearsal tape be entered into evidence in the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, according to the story.
The footage is apparently seen as support for testimony by the tour’s director that Jackson was happy about preparations for the tour and about the future–testimony that is in opposition to the defense contention that Jackson was unhappy and “took desperate measures that caused his own death,” the story says.
The D.A. also reportedly filed a motion seeking to introduce photos from Jackson’s autopsy.
