Friends of Lana Clarkson protest HBO film “Phil Spector”
On February 3, 2003, fashion model and sci-fi movie actress Lana Clarkson was fatally shot in the mansion of famed music producer Phil Spector, who at his prime was connected to acts like The Beatles and Tina Turner. Clarkson was 40 years old.
During the first trial, in 2007, Spector argued that Clarkson's death was an "accidental suicide," saying that she "kissed the gun." However, a jury found Spector guilty of murder in 2009 and he was sentenced to 19 years in prison.
