Michael Jackson doctor points finger at dermatologist

Wednesday March 23, 2011

As the investigation continues into the extent of Dr Conrad Murray's involvement with Michael Jackon's death, a new suspect has been called in to question.

The pop legend's dermatologist has now been accused of fuelling his addiction to painkillers.

The finger has been pointed at Dr Arnold Klein by the lawyers for Dr Murray, who is to go on trial for involuntary manslaughter relating to the Thriller singer's death.

Although the 50-year-old passed away in Dr Murray's care from an overdose of Propofol, his defence team claim he is not solely responsible for Michael's substance dependence. 

Dr Klein apparently administered an analgesic drug to him up to 51 times in the three months before his unexpected death.

This therefore makes him a "relevant and highly material witness to the defence". 

Dr Murray is set to stand trial later this year.
