A nurse who treated Michael Jackson is expected to detail the singer's requests for a powerful anesthetic when she resumes testifying Tuesday.

The first day of Dr. Conrad Murray's defense case ended Monday without Cherilyn Lee describing her conversations with Jackson about propofol. Lee has said she repeatedly warned Jackson that using the drug as a sleep aid could kill him.

Authorities contend Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of the surgical anesthetic. Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

Lee, a nurse practioner, is the sixth witness that Murray's defense attorneys have called to try to counter four weeks of damaging testimony by prosecution witnesses.

Murray's attorneys also plan to call Jackson's makeup artist to testify Tuesday.
