Conrad Murray Trial, Day 6: Pharmacist Testifies About Propofol -- Update 3

Published: October 04, 2011 @ 7:55 am

Update, 12:15 p.m. PT

Tim Lopez, former operator of Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas, testified Tuesday at the involuntary manslaughter trial of Conrad Murray, telling the court that Murray had purchased increasing amounts of the anesthetic Propofol from him.


Lopez (pictured) testified that Murray first contacted him in November 2008 to ask about inquiring the skin-whitening cream benoquin, to treat his patients' vitiligo. Lopez eventually located the source materials for the cream in March 2009, and Murray placed an order.

After calling to tell Lopez how pleased he was with the order, Conrad made another request, according to Lopez.

"He asked me specifically to find pricing and availability of Propofol and normal saline," Lopez told the court.

Murray placed an initial order on April 6, 2009, for 10 100-milliliter vials and 25 20-milliliter vials of the anesthetic, to be shipped to his Las Vegas office. When the courier arrived with the order, however, Murray removed several bottles of Propofol and asked that the rest be shipped to his Santa Monica, Calif. office -- a request Lopez honored.

Three weeks later, on April 28, Murray placed another order -- which was quadruple the size of his initial order. Lopez testified that, on the 28th, Murray ordered 40 100-milliliter vials of Propofol, plus 25 more 20-milliliter vials of the drug, to be delivered to his Santa Monica office.

All told, Lopez testified, Murray ordered 255 vials of Propofol, 20 vials of the anti-anxiety medication Lorazepam, and 60 vials of the anesthetic Midazolam from Lopez between April and Jackson's death in June.

Lopez testified that he offered to deliver one of the orders to Murray's Santa Monica office personally in order to save him the shipping charge, as he was traveling to Los Angeles International Airport, but Murray told him to continue using the delivery service.

Lopez also told the court that, at no time during their business transactions did Murray disclose that he was Michael Jackson's physician, nor did he disclose the identities of any of his patients.

Testimony continues with Murray's girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez (pictured), who appeared to be caught in a lie by the prosecution. In a January preliminary hearing, Alvarez testified she received a fax of Murray's contract for providing medical services to Jackson. In that hearing, she said she noticed that the contract stipulated Murray would be paid $150,000.

In today's testimony, when asked about the same contract, she said she couldn't remember how much Murray was to be paid.

Alvarez confirmed that she currently lives with Murray, and that he pays her rent, approximately $2,500 a month. The two have a son, Murray's seventh and youngest child, together.

Alvarez also recalled speaking to Murray briefly on the day of June 25., 2009, as Murray accompanied Jackson in the ambulance en route to the UCLA hospital.
