JACKO SON KEY WITNESS in DEATH DOC TRIAL

MICHAEL JACKSON’s grief-stricken family is counting on his son PRINCE to provide the bomb­shell testimony that will land his dad’s physician behind bars, say sources.

Dr. Conrad Murray, 58, has pleaded not guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the entertainer’s death – and the testimony of 14- year-old Prince is vital, according to family members, because he wit­nessed the heart doctor’s actions in the bedroom of the Holmby Hills, Calif., mansion where Michael died June 25, 2009.

“Both the family and the dis­trict attorney’s office have been going over with Prince exactly what his memory is of that ter­rible day so he will be able to accurately testify to everything he saw,” revealed a family friend.

“They think Prince’s testimony will blow Murray’s defense out of the water.”

During the trial, now under­way, the physician’s attorneys will likely claim that Michael took the fatal dose of propofol – a powerful anesthetic – while Murray was out of the room.

“That’s why Prince’s evidence is so vital,” explained the Jack­son friend. “Propofol causes near instantaneous sleep. So if Michael injected himself, there would still have been a syringe next to him. And if he drank the propofol, the contain­er would have been there.

“But when Prince went into the room, he saw an IV hooked up by Murray still inserted in Michael’s arm. His testimony will prove that it was the IV hookup that killed Michael.

“Dr. Murray had left the room to telephone a girlfriend, and when he came back and saw the state Michael was in, he called Prince to come up to the bed­room from downstairs.

“We believe Dr. Murray wanted Prince as a witness to show how he was trying to save Michael. Ironically, what Prince saw when he went into the room will con­vict Murray.”
