After some nine days and 32 hours of deliberations, the jury presiding over the Phil Spector trial have come to a verdict, which will be announced at 1:30 p.m. "Spector faces at least 18 years in prison if convicted of second-degree murder in the death of Lana Clarkson, an actress shot in the legendary music producer’s Alhambra mansion six years ago," reported the LA Times. "A lesser charge, involuntary manslaughter, carries two to four years in prison... The panel of six men and six women includes three gun owners, seven people who reported knowing someone who committed suicide and one man who said he was a fan of Spector."
