Daaaaamn. Nutjob and genius (are they mutual requisites?) music producer Phil Spector has been found guilty of murdering actress Lana Clarkson at his home in Los Angeles, following a five month retrial.
Spector, 68-year-old, is looking at 18 years to life in prison.

"I don't think justice was done today," said Spector's lawyer, Doron Weinberg, who plans to appeal. He congratulated the jury on "trying to do the best honest job they could" with "complete integrity and complete honesty", but said they had been working with "improper and prejudicial evidence" which made it impossible for them to reach a fair conclusion, and that he was "very, very certain" that Spector had not been proved guilty "under the proper legal standard".
