Detectives in the PHIL SPECTOR murder trial will not be ready to present their case against the legendary producer at his scheduled court appearance next week, according to a lead investigator.
Spector was arrested nearly six months ago in connection with the death of actress Lana Clarkson. Her body was found on February 3 in the foyer of his Alhambra mansion. He is currently on a $1 million bail.
Sheriff’s Lt Dan Rosenburg said: “We’re still waiting to get all of the reports back from the crime lab.” He also said that Spector’s bail is likely to be extended for another month while the prosecution gathers more information.
The hearing is due to take place on August 5 and Rosenburg predicts that it will now likely be a bail hearing at which Spector may not have to appear.
He told Billboard: “It may be handled on the phone.”
Spector’s attorney Robert Shapiro was not available for comment.
