Apr 13, 2009 by Ian Evans

Legendary producer Phil Spector has been convicted of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson at his home six years ago. He was also found guilty of using a firearm in committing a crime.

The judge in the case, Judge Larry Paul Fidler, remanded Spector to jail immediately. A second-degree murder charge carries a penalty of 15 years to life in prison. It was Spector’s second trial, as the first one ended in a deadlock back in 2007.
