According to a new report from TMZ, Michael Jackson’s personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense strategy in his upcoming manslaughter trial will be to claim that Michael killed himself — by giving himself the dose of Propofol that caused his death.

In Dr. Conrad Murray’s upcoming trial on involuntary manslaughter charges, he’ll attempt to defend himself by claiming that Michael Jackson actually took the lethal dose of hospital-grade anesthetic Propofol that caused his heart to stop on June 25, 2009.

According to TMZ’s report, Dr. Murray will claim that on the night of MJ’s death,  he stepped out of the room where he and MJ were sitting in for just two minutes. Then, “Jackson suddenly awakened and was frustrated he had spent nearly 9 hours trying in vain to sleep … Jackson took the 20 ml bottle of Propofol and self-injected the remaining contents through the IV, causing a massive overdose that stopped his heart.”

Do you believe that MJ could have done all this in just 120 seconds? Will this theory hold water in court?
