LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death says he hasn't made a final decision about whether or not he will testify in his own defense.

Dr. Conrad Murray told Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor that he has thought about whether to testify and has consulted with his attorney. But Murray says he hasn't made a final decision and will advise the judge in the morning of his decision.

Pastor asked Murray if he had made a decision after jurors had left the courtroom on Monday.

The judge told Murray he has a constitutional right to testify and the right to remain silent. He has previously given Murray the same advisement of his rights.

Pastor says attorneys told him that the evidence phase of the case may conclude on Tuesday.
