Closing Arguments Set for Phil Spector Murder Trial – Again
03/25/2009 AT 10:00 AM EDT
The music producer, 69, is charged with second-degree murder stemming from the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson at his home in 2003. His first trial ended in 2007 with a deadlocked jury.
On Tuesday, Spector's attorney, Doron Weinberg, told the jury Clarkson killed herself, and presented 14 points of forensic evidence as proof, reports the Associated Press. The day before a prosecutor told the jury Spector was a "demonic maniac."
Spector faces 15 years to life in prison if convicted, although the jury will be allowed to consider a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter.
