Jackson trial to hear doctor tape

The trial of the doctor charged in connection with Michael Jackson's death will resume later with jurors expected to hear the conclusion of the physician's police interview.

The remainder of the recording includes Dr Conrad Murray's description of telling Jackson's mother and young children that the singer had died.

Towards the end of the recording, the Houston-based cardiologist revealed where to find bags in Jackson's bedroom containing vials of the anaesthetic propofol and other medical equipment.

Jurors in Los Angeles may also hear more about the powerful anaesthetic. Prosecutors planned last week to call a top propofol expert to give evidence.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities say he gave Jackson a lethal dose of propofol and other sedatives, but Murray's lawyers contend the singer gave himself the fatal dose.
