LOS ANGELES (AP) — A police detective will resume testifying Wednesday about his investigation of Michael Jackson's doctor as part of a civil case filed by the pop singer's mother.
Los Angeles Police Detective Orlando Martinez testified Tuesday that Murray was deeply in debt and was desperate to ensure he receive his large payday for working with Jackson.
Martinez told jurors that Murray, who is not a party to the civil case, was more than $500,000 in debt when Jackson died. Martinez says he found most of the debts in public records.
Katherine Jackson is suing concert giant AEG Live, claiming the company failed to properly investigate Murray before allowing him to work with her son.
AEG denies it hired Murray, who treated Jackson before preparations began for his planned comeback concerts.
