Dr. Kevorkian: Michael Jackson "Got What He Wanted"

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Jack Kevorkian defended Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray, who is the sole target of the investigation into the late pop star's death by injection.

On Wednesday the now-paroled Kevorkian, 81, told Neil Cavuto, "I don't think he was malicious. Murder is defined as malice aforethought... Did the doctor have forethought? I doubt it."

Murray says he injected Jackson with heavy sedatives including the anesthetic propofol at the singer's request.

"Maybe Jackson craved these things so much he pestered the doctor until he got it." Kevorkian added, "The patient got what he wanted. He is the one who said yes or no to take a drug."

As for his own life, Kevorkian says he has "no regrets." The Jackson part begins at the 9:30-remaining mark in the second video below, which is his entire interview over two segments.
