Michael Jackson 'did not cause own death'

The medic who carried out Michael Jackson's autopsy has said it is unlikely that the singer self-administered the dose of benzodiazepines and propofol that killed him.

Dr Christopher Rogers gave his testimony during the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, which resumed on Tuesday.

"To me it seems like it's reasonable to believe that the doctor had an imperfect control over the dose and he may have accidentally given too much," he said.

"The theory that seems less reasonable to me is that Mr Jackson woke up, and although he was under the influence of sedative medications, managed to give himself another dose."
