NEW YORK (CNN)—CNN is reporting that Dr. Conrad Murray will file an appeal of his involuntary manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson.

CNN has obtained a section of a 300 page document that Murray will use to try and clear his name.

It says the prosecutor didn’t prove Jackson was hooked up to an I.V. drip of the drug that killed him.

The defense’s theory was that Jackson administered the fatal dosage himself while Murray was away.

Jackson died in 2009 after overdosing on a surgical anesthetic combined with sedatives.

Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician, has said he used Propofal to induce sleep because Jackson was suffering from insomnia.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed by Jackson’s three children and his mother is set for trial next month.
