LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors are winding down their case against the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death by calling three experts intended to help jurors make sense of the complex medical evidence they have been presented.

A court transcript released late Tuesday shows prosecutors told a judge overseeing the case against Dr. Conrad Murray that their remaining witnesses include experts in cardiology, pharmacology and the anesthetic propofol.

Murray’s defense attorneys are likely to vigorously challenge the experts.

Among the witnesses prosecutors plan to call is Dr. Steven Shafer, a researcher and professor who is a leading expert in propofol, which authorities contend killed Jackson in June 2009.

Shafer is expected to be their final witness.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
