The jury hearing Phil Spector’s murder retrial found the music producer guilty today of charges of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson. Clarkson died of a gunshot wound at Spector’s Los Angeles mansion in February 2003 under dubious circumstances. Spector’s first trial began in April 2007 and concluded in September 2007 when the jury failed to reach a verdict. Deliberations for Spector’s second murder trial stretched 32 hours over nine days. The 69-year-old Spector faces a minimum of 18 years of prison; he’ll be sentenced on May 29th.
It's really pretty sad that someone died because of this guy's nutbar tendencies, but thankfully, the LA legal system finally came through for something.
Go home tonight, put on "Let It Be...Naked" and stick it to this guy. But just for tonight -- then you can go back to listening to all his amazing work with the Ronettes, Darlene Love, John Lennon, Dion, etc.
