5:16 pm
his iphone and using the i- phone to record the conversation and to show him what he sounded like when he was drugged. this is what we heard is one explaining from the defense lawyer and we'll know about that when they present their case. an audio recording that is incomprehensible unless you're seeing the words on the pour -- powerpoint screen as they're being shown in the courtroom, the slurring is so heavy. the words shoe so powerful. when we first had opening statements, you will probably recall some of this was played. >> yes. >> reporter: 53 secs of it where we heard he wanted to go to children's hospital and wanted to take the money from the this is it concert and dedicate it to what he called the michael jackson children's hospital. now, we hear another three minutes or so of this thing, it's over four minutes and we hear that michael jackson said in his conversation with murray he didn't have a childhood, that he hurts. that he thinks the world's children are depressed and he
5:17 pm
feels for them, which is more supportive. [ overlapping speakers ] >> what is the point behind playing the recorded conversations in the courtroom? >> reporter: well, i think the prosecution would look at this as a way to say see, michael jackson has a drug problem and this is six weeks before his untimely death and this is murray sitting there with him and he's not doing anything about trying to wean him off as he said he is. if the timeline works out the way the prosecution will lay it out, they will say between may 10th and june 25th nothing was really done to change the course of jackson's drug use with regard to sleeping medication or whatever. the defense may turn that around and say well, we told you. michael jackson was a drug addict and caused his own demise. he drank some, whatever he did. you're going to get two different spins off of this. >> you're saying the reason dr. murray recorded this was to prove to play them back to michael jackson later to show
5:18 pm
he had a drug problem? is that what i'm understand something. >> reporter: if you remember the today show interview,thy got the joy judge so upset with one of the defense attorneys. he said in that interview that that was the reason why he recorded it. he was putting that out there to deflect or mitigate the problem and to say, you know, he was recording it to show jackson when he was lucid what he sounded like when he was not. >> and let me ask you quickly, too, reaction from conrad murray. have you been able to keep an eye on him during the testimony? i heard he actually fell asleep at one point during testimony last week. has that happened again? what has his reaction been to all of this. >> reporter: he seems, you know, if you're looking at him and you're not inside of his head, he looks disconnected. he is smug and sits there. we saw it during the opening statements. there was some tearing. we have seen a couple of, you know, reactions to things that were said and in one he looks
5:19 pm
puzzled and sits there and listens and takes notes. for the most part, his head is down and he's looking at the yellow legal pad. >> thank you, hal as always for keeping us up to date on the trial in los angeles. appreciate it and you can follow them any time. it provides a commentary. for more inform a, including continuing coverage of the trial, check out www.myfoxdc.com. amanda knox spinning her first -- spending her first full day in the u.s. in years. she arrived in seattle a little tearful and overwhelmed. one day after being acquitted of murder in italy, she spent four years in an italian prison. the appeals cort judge was part of the jury that acquitted knox and inside a interview last night this knox and her ex- boyfriend may know the real truth and might be responsible but the evidence did not prove
