Phil Spector Found Guilty of Second-Degree Murder

April 13, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Music producer Phil Spector famed for his work with musical acts such as Tina Turner, the Beatles and the Righteous Brothers, has been found guilty of second-degree murder in a Los Angeles court for the 2003 gruesome shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. This was Spector’s second judgment day on the Clarkson case. In 2007, a jury deadlocked 10-2 in favor of convicting Spector.

At the second trial as at the first, prosecutors said Clarkson fell victim to a man who had a three-decade “history of playing Russian roulette with the lives of women,” especially when he’d been drinking. Spector’s defense contended Clarkson shot herself.

But now, after just 30 hours of deliberation, a second jury has returned a definitive guilty verdict. Spector, 69, the man behind the Beatles’ Let It Be, faces a possible 18 years to life sentence.
