Phil Spector is to launch an appeal against his murder conviction on the grounds of judicial error and prosecutorial misconduct.

The producer is currently serving a 19-years-to-life jail sentence for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson, which he started in 2009. His lawyers now claim that he didn’t have a fair trial, reports BBC News.

Spector‘s appeal was launched on Wednesday (March 10) in Los Angeles, with the lawyers arguing: “None of the… evidence involved events in which Mr Spector put a gun in someone’s mouth, much less fired it.”

They added that the prosecution in the case improperly asserted that Spector “had a history and propensity of violence against women and thus should be convicted based on his bad character and evil propensities”.
