Dr. Conrad Murray will not testify at his trial for involuntary manslaughter, according to the Los Angeles Times

Michael Jackson's doctor made his announcement in court on Tuesday.

The prosecution has accused Murray of making fatal medical mistakes that led to the death of the pop star. 

According to the LA Times:

"After informing Murray of his dual constitutional rights to testify and to remain silent, Judge Michael Pastor asked the doctor Tuesday, 'What is your decision?'

Murray paused, looked to his lead defense attorney Ed Chernoff and then to his left at two other lawyers and said, 'My decision is to not testify -- .'

His response was interrupted by a prosecutor who objected to a 'narrative answer.' The judge asked Murray again and he replied, 'My decision is that I will not testify in this matter.'"
