Testimony from Paul Gongaware, an executive with concert promoter AEG Live, will continue Wednesday morning. He will then be followed by one of Jackson's bodyguards and a personal assistant.

Jurors in the involuntary manslaughter case against Murray were presented Tuesday with two portraits of Jackson. One was the image of an entertainer motivated to succeed at his first concerts in nearly a dozen years, while the other was a man who was too damaged at times to perform.

Prosecutors allege Murray caused Jackson's death by providing him with a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and other sedatives without the proper lifesaving equipment or skills. The defense says Jackson gave himself propofol after Murray left the room.
