Prosecution Rests in Murray Case
The prosecution has ended its case in the Conrad Murray preliminary hearing after 6 days of testimony.
The defense filed a motion to dismiss, which is routine. It will almost certainly be denied.
Judge Michael Pastor has taken a recess. It's virtually certain that Dr. Murray will be ordered to stand trial.
The Deputy Attorney General who represents the Medical Board of California is in the courtroom. We're told he will ask the judge to suspend Murray's license to practice medicine.
