Some Prospective Jurors: Phil Spector Did It

Music producer PHIL SPECTOR was confronted TUESDAY (4/17) with prospective jurors who declared they had already decided he was guilty of the murder of actress LANA CLARKSON.
"Honestly, I think he did it," a young aspiring actress said during jury selection. "I think I'm a fair person, but it would be very difficult to forget what I read."
She said she believed celebrities often have things handed to them and as a result they "just act inappropriately. I moved out here to be an actress and I have strong morals," she said. "But it's easy to see how you start to think the world is just about you."
CLARKSON was shot through the mouth in the foyer of SPECTOR's suburban ALHAMBRA home on FEBRUARY 3, 2003 after going home with him from her job as a hostess at the HOUSE OF BLUES on the SUNSET STRIP. SPECTOR has pleaded not guilty to murder.
