Anthony Mccartney AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A coroner who conducted the autopsy on Michael Jackson says there is no evidence supporting the theory by attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray that Jackson gave himself a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol.

Dr. Christopher Rogers also testified Tuesday that the singer was healthier than most people his age and his heart did not show the usual signs of fatty buildup generally seen in men the same age.

Rogers explained to jurors how coroner's officials determined the 50-year-old singer died in June 2009 from acute propofol intoxication.

The determination led to prosecutors charging Murray with involuntary manslaughter. The cardiologist has pleaded not guilty.
