A California appeals court has rejected Phil Spector’s bid to have his second-degree murder conviction thrown out in the shooting of actress Lana Clarkson. A three-member panel of the state 2nd District Court of Appeal issued an 81-page decision yesterday explaining why it rejected claims the judge in Spector’s trial committed reversible error. They found there was neither judicial nor prosecutorial misconduct in the trial, and that the testimony of five women who claimed Spector threatened them with guns in past years was properly admitted. Spector was convicted two years ago of shooting the actress to death at his Alhambra mansion in 2003. He’s serving 19 years to life in prison. His first trial ended in a hung jury; the second in conviction.
