Attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray have requested urgent tests on two syringes and an IV bag because the liquid contained in the items is drying up, according to the Associated Press.


The items were found in Michael Jackson’s home after his death and are included in evidence in Murray’s manslaughter trial.


“It hasn’t been done yet. It should have been done a year ago,” a defense attorney said, according to court documents, adding that the substances had not been tested because an official at the Los Angeles coroner’s office had been on a lengthy vacation.
