He Shot Me (And It Felt Like Second Degree Murder): Phil Spector Found Guilty
The once-vaunted and now deeply fallen record producer Phil Spector won't dodge the murder of actress Lana Clarkson twice--after 30 hours of deliberation, a Los Angeles jury just handed down a guilty verdict for murder in the second-degree, the same charge Spector dodged after a 2007 mistrial. The 40-year-old Clarkson was found dead in the notoriously gun-happy Spector's mansion in 2003, slumped in a chair, as CNN puts it, "with a gunshot wound through the roof of her mouth." Somewhere Ronnie Spector is saying "I told you so." [CNN, via Gawker]
