Witness in Jackson case: Things didn't add up

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Paramedic Richard Senneff says when he rushed to the home of Michael Jackson on an emergency call, what he saw didn't add up. Senneff says the gaunt man, an IV stand next to the bed and Dr. Conrad Murray nearby, pointed more to a hospice patient, not an international pop superstar.

Senneff returns to the stand today for defense questioning in Murray's Los Angeles preliminary hearing. Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.

Senneff testified yesterday that Murray said he was treating Jackson for dehydration and exhaustion and that Jackson had just passed out. But Senneff said Jackson's legs were cold and limp, his open eyes dried out and his hands and feet turning blue.

Senneff says Murray never mentioned that he had just given Jackson propofol, a powerful anesthetic that authorities say killed the pop star.
