Jurors in L.A. found former hit-maker and full-time nutbag Phil Spector guilty today of second-degree murder in the 2003 shooting death of B-movie star Lana Clarkson. Spector, 69, could face life in prison when sentenced on May 29. This was Spector’s second judgment day in the case; in 2007, a jury deadlocked 10-2 in favor of convicting Spector.
At the second trial, just as in the first, prosecutors said Clarkson fell victim to a man who had a history of waving guns at, and acting violently toward women, especially when he’d been drinking. Spector’s defense contended Clarkson shot herself. This tale didn’t fool anyone this time. No word on whether Phil will be allowed to decorate his cell in the style he’s kept his mansion…namely “Early Elvis.”
