A jury found music producer Phil Spector guilty of second degree murder for the killing of actress Lana Carkson.
LOS ANGELES — Rock music producer Phil Spector has been convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson at his mansion six years ago.
A Los Angeles Superior Court jury returned the verdict Monday after an estimated 29 to 30 hours of deliberations.
The 40-year-old Clarkson, star of the 1985 cult film “Barbarian Queen,” died of a gunshot fired in her mouth as she sat in the foyer of Spector’s mansion in 2003. She met Spector only hours earlier at her job as a nightclub hostess.
