I do have to say that I miss the ‘fro. Phil Spector, 69, is charged with murdering Lana Clarkson, 40, on Feb 3, 2003 as she tried to leave his faux castle home outside Los Angeles. The two met for the first time only hours before in a Hollywood nightclub where the B-movie actress was working as a hostess.
Prosecutors in music producer Phil Spector’s retrial for the 2003 murder of a Hollywood actress told jurors on Monday the shooting was “a death waiting to happen in his world.”
“When he’s ignited, he always does the same thing — he grabs a gun,” prosecutor Truc Do said in closing arguments in the five-month retrial. “In every single one of these incidents, Mr. Spector demonstrates conscious disregard for human life…Her death was a death waiting to happen in his world.”
A prosecutor also called Phil Spector a “demonic maniac” with “a history of playing Russian roulette with the lives of women.” “By the grace of God, five other women got the empty chamber and lived to tell,” Deputy Dist. Atty. Truc Do said, referring to a string of former love interests who testified at Spector’s murder retrial about harrowing encounters with him.
Ah, the party is at Phil’s? Hopefully this trial won’t be a waste.
