UPDATE 3 p.m.: "If you're going to hold Dr. Murray responsible, don't do it because it's Michael Jackson," Chernoff told the jury in conclusion. "This isn't a reality show, this is reality. This affects real human beings. I hope you find Dr. Murray not guilty. Thank you." Walgren planned to start his rebuttal argument at 3:25 p.m.
UPDATE 1:50 p.m.: To begin his closing argument, defense attorney Ed Chernoff stated that the prosecution "absolutely failed to prove a crime...Prosecutors tried to crate a drip that never existed. They wont tell you what they really want. They want you to convict Dr. Murray for the actions of Michael Jackson."
