Picture - Phil Spector

* SPECTOR CONVICTED Music producer PHIL SPECTOR has been found guilty of second-degree murder after a six month retrial in Los Angeles. Jurors, who were handed the case on 26 March (09), reached a verdict at Los Angeles Superior Court early on Monday (13Apr09), and ruled the mogul shot and killed actress Lana Clarkson in the foyer of his Alhambra, California mansion in February, 2003. Spector and his defence team maintained depressed Clarkson shot herself. Throughout the trial, prosecutors depicted the producer as a sadistic misogynist. The 69 year old behind classic hits by Tina Turner, the Beatles and the Ramones now faces at least 18 years behind bars. Spector was in court for the verdict. A sentencing date has still to be set. Spector's first trial ended in 2007 with a jury deadlock. The majority favoured conviction. (KL/WN/IG) Phil Spector arrives at the Los Angeles Superior Court Los Angeles, California - 13.04.09
