Phil Spector jury deliberations continue

Jurors conclude their third day without a verdict

Jurors in the Phil Spector murder trial retired from their third day of deliberations today (September 12) without announcing a verdict.

The twelve jurors have appeared in good spirits as they enter and leave the courtroom each day, according to the Los Angeles Times. Among the jurors are an engineer, five civil servants, and one film executive.

Today Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler called the jurors into the courtroom to warn them to refrain from watching a Dateline NBC special on the trial that is scheduled to air tonight.

Spector is accused of murdering actress Lana Clarkson at his Los Angeles mansion on February 3, 2003. The defence contends the actress’ death was suicide.

If the legendary producer is found guilty, he could face 15 years to life in prison.
