Six years after B-movie star Lana Clarkson died of a gunshot wound in music producer Phil Spector‘s home, a jury has finally ruled in the case against Spector, EOnline.com reports.

 

In the second trial against Spector since Clarkson was killed, a Los Angeles jury found Spector guilty of second-degree murder. The former hitmaker is 69 and could spend the rest of his years in jail after his sentencing on May 29.

 

Prosecutors said Clarkson was the victim of a man who had a history of violence against women. Spector’s lawyers contended that she shot herself in his foyer.

 

Spector is no stranger to the courtroom – in 2007 a jury was unable to reach a verdict in the case.

Prosecutors—who used the same line of defense at the second trial as the first—argued Clarkson fell victim to a man who had a history of waving guns and acting violently toward women—especially when he’d been drinking. Spector’s defense contended Clarkson shot herself.
