Phil Spector Murder Trial (Slight Return…)

 

 

Famed producer just
can’t get no respect.

Accused murderer Phil Spector was back in court yesterday
(Oct. 20) as jury selection began at his second trial in Los Angeles. Overseen by Superior Court Judge
Larry Fidler (who also presided at Spector’s prior trial, which lasted nearly 5
months ended in a 10-2 jury deadlock and ultimately was declared a mistrial), the
selection process whittled 80 potential jurors down to 18.

 

Spector was accompanied by his wife Rachelle. The 69 year
old music icon will be standing trial for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

 

The trial has finally gotten underway after a series of delaying
moves by the defense, which was trying to block the trial on the grounds of
double jeopardy (er, it was a mistrial,
not an acquittal, gents).

 

Meanwhile, the defense team for Spector’s hair was
reportedly planning to file a motion to postpone the trial on the grounds of
follicular misconduct…. (You knew that joke was coming, right?)
