Wired PR News – Music producer Phil Spector has been found guilty in the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Spector was convicted of second-degree murder on Monday.
Spector was reportedly unemotional upon receiving the verdict. His defense attorney is said to have plans to appeal the verdict, citing flawed rulings by the judge, who allowed the testimony of several women who commented on the producer’s past.
In 2003, Lana Clarkson reportedly met Spector at a nightclub and subsequently agreed to visit him for a drink. The 40 year-old was shot and killed in Spector’s home. His attorneys are claiming that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted, but prosecutors disagree.
Spector faces a minimum sentence of 18 years in prison. He is set to be sentenced May 29.
