If you’ve been watching closely and following the fall out of evidence in the case, this week the defense will battle the prosecution’s aggressive strategy by building a case showing Michael Jackson was at fault for the causes of his own death – mainly due to the overwhelming amount of drugs identified in his system.

We’ll keep you posted on the details as they unfold, but we want to know will you be watching?
