In the ongoing saga of Dr. Conrad Murray's trial involving the death of Michael Jackson, a new development has surfaced.

TMZ is reporting that the defense wants a first generation fingerprint of a broken syringe that was found under Michael Jackson's bed the day he died. The report says that this could potentially prove that Jackson killed himself.

Murray's lawyers focused on the broken syringe in court this morning. The syringe, which rolled under Jackson's bed, could determine who was using it after fingerprints are taken.

TMZ reports that Murray insists he did not break the syringe. The report also says that the defense believes Jackson caused his own death by giving himself a massive overdose of Propofol while the doctor was out of the room.

Allegedly there were only two people in the room, Murray and Jackson, and since Murray claims he did not break the syringe, it must have been handled by Jackson.

TMZ reports that the defense is asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to deliver the first generation fingerprint.
