PRESS ASSOCIATION -- A casualty doctor has told the manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's personal physician that he never mentioned giving the singer a powerful anaesthetic.

Dr Richelle Cooper resumed her evidence in Los Angeles as the trial of Dr Conrad Murray entered its second week.

She was on duty at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre the day Jackson died.

She has said she gave paramedics permission to pronounce the singer dead at his rented mansion, but he was brought to the hospital because Murray wanted resuscitation efforts to continue.

She said Murray told her he had given Jackson the sedative lorazepam but did not mention the anaesthetic propofol.

Murray denies giving Jackson a fatal dose of propofol and other sedatives.
