Legendary music producer Phil Spector has been found guilty of second-degree murder, as the trial over the murder of actress Lana Clarkson concluded after five months yesterday (April 13).

Spector has been convicted of shooting Clarkson at his Los Angeles home on February 3, 2003, by a unanimous jury who took 30 hours to come to their verdict.

A previous court case for the same shooting ended in a mistrial when the jury were deadlocked 10-2 in favour of conviction.

Spector chose not to give any evidence in the trial at the Los Angeles courtcase and showed ‘no emotion’ as the verdict was read out, accoring to the Associated Press report.

Spector will remain in jail until sentencing on May 29, when he could face from 15 years to life in prison for second-degree murder.

Spector who pioneered the Wall of Sound technique in the 60s was also responsible for producing hits such as The Ronettes “Be My Baby” and The Righteous Brothers “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling.”
