London (ANI): The jury hearing Phil Spector trial has failed to
arrive at a verdict. The record producer has been charged with the
murder of B-movie actress Lana Clarkson at his home in February
2003. However, Spector has denied shooting Clarkson and has
insisted that the actress committed suicide.
Now, the judge in Los Angeles has declared the case a mistrial
and prosecutors have sought a new trial. Since Sept 10, the jury
has been trying to arrive at a conclusion in the trial that has
been running for four months. Last week, the jury said they are
split seven to five over a verdict. The judge has scheduled a
hearing on 3 October to decide how to proceed in the case.
