It appears that Dr Conrad Murray's defence lawyer, Michael Flanagan, is attempting to inject into the preliminary hearing in Los Angeles speculation that Michael Jackson may have committed suicide.
Mr Flanagan asked about the proximity of the needles:
"If a person about 136 pounds and 5'9" was on the bed, they should be able to reach them, right?"
The prosecution objected that this was speculation, and the judge concurred.
The hearing continues this week.
