LOS ANGELES (AP) — A dental anesthesiologist has told a jury that Michael Jackson asked her to give him anesthesia to help him sleep at least a decade before his death.
Dr. Christine Quinn testified Wednesday that Jackson summoned her to a Beverly Hills hotel in 1998 or 1999 and asked her to give him the anesthetic propofol to help him sleep.
Quinn said she refused his request and told the singer it wasn't appropriate.
Jackson died from an overdose of propofol in 2009 that was administered in the singer's bedroom by Conrad Murray, who was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
Quinn was testifying in a negligent hiring lawsuit filed by Jackson's mother against AEG Live LLC, the promoters of his ill-fated comeback concerts.
