Dr. Richelle Cooper was at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where the pop star was pronounced dead. 

Cooper testified Friday that Murray claimed the singer underwent cardiac arrest after receiving two small doses of the sedative lorazepam, not propofol.

The prosecution spent last week establishing a chronological timeline, hearing testimonies from witnesses about the singer's final performances and interactions with fans during his last few days.  

Murray's lead defense attorney, Ed Chernoff, has said that his strategy will be to prove that Jackson died from an additional dose of propofol, taken outside of Murray's ministrations.   

Murray, who was Jackson's personal physician, is being tried for involuntary manslaughter in connection with the singer's death in 2009.  He faces four years in prison and the loss of his medical license if convicted.
