LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A prosecutor will get his chance to grill a defense expert who told jurors last week that he believes Michael
Jackson gave himself a fatal dose of a powerful anesthetic.
Dr. Paul White is likely to face tough questions from a prosecutor who was granted extra time to prepare for Monday's trial session.
White is testifying for Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
The retired anesthesiologist and research told jurors that he concluded that Jackson must have given himself a fatal dose of the
anesthetic propofol, which Murray was giving him as a sleep aid.
White says it is the only explanation that fits all the evidence in the case, although another prominent expert has called White's theory "crazy."
