Three years since the death of Michael Jackson, the man who was accused of his death, Dr. Conrad Murray, to this day insisted that he did nothing wrong the evening of the pop star's demise.
Murray, who is currently incarcerated for involuntary manslaughter for his hand in Jackson's death, spoke to E! News through his lawyers and said that he felt bad that he deprived the singer of sleep the night of his death, and his goal was to get Jackson off propofol, which caused the death due to intoxication in June 2008.
Murray said that he was framed for the death, and that he was only trying to help Jackson try to sleep, as the singer was apparently suffering from severe insomnia due to his addiction to propofol the night of his death, said E! News on Monday. The former doctor insisted he was innocent and that evil was done to him, according to the report, and sees the entire incident as an injustice.
The jailed doctor continued about what he believed was best for Jackson, telling E! News that he didn't believe the singer wanted to be buried upon his death, but rather cremated with his ashes spread across the Pacific Ocean, and that he would rather stay in the state of Nevada, which apparently was the only United State he liked, rather than being confined to California.
Murray spends his jail time reading letters from people all around the world, who have apparently said positive things to the man convicted of killing Michael Jackson. His attorney, Valerie Wass, also said that the doctor spends his time reading books and playing word -of -the-day games, said E! News.
"He reads a lot of historical fiction," Wass says. "He probably spends 10 hours a day reading."
Murray apparently said that he hopes to continue practicing medicine once he gets out of prison, the report said. However, due to the state's inmate realignment program, said E! News, Murray will have to serve 100 percent of his sentence, and will not be eligible for any alternative custody method, which his lawyers tried to get for him, but were denied.
