Events leading up to Michael Jackson's death expected to be discussed in case against Conrad Murray

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors in day two of the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor are expected to move toward the events that led to the pop star's death and their immediate aftermath.

Testimony from Paul Gongaware, an executive with concert promoter AEG Live, will continue this morning, and he will be followed by one of Jackson's bodyguards and a personal assistant.

Jurors in the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray were presented yesterday with two portraits of Jackson. One was of him as an entertainer motivated to succeed at his first concerts in nearly a dozen years, and the other of a man too damaged at times to perform.

Prosecutors allege Murray caused Jackson's death by providing him with a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and other sedatives without the proper lifesaving equipment or skills. The defense says Jackson gave himself propofol after Murray left the room.
