Conrad Murray is too big for jail cell - lawyers

LOS ANGELES

Lawyers say Murray is 6-foot-5 and confined to a 5-foot by 7-foot cell. They claim that has caused health problems, and he even had to be taken to the hospital.

"He can't extend feet, he can't stretch his arms, and there's no wonder that it's given rise to the problems that he has right now. County jail was not meant for long-term confinement," said Murray's attorney Michael Flanagan.

Murray's lawyers are worried his confinement could cause permanent injury or death. They are calling Baca to release him with either home confinement, GPS monitoring or work release.

The sheriff's department has not commented on the matter.
