The judge in the murder case against music producer Phil Spector said Wednesday that he’s leaning toward allowing the trial to be televised and will make a decision after hearing from lawyers later this month. The 67-year-old producer – famed for creating the “wall of sound” recording technique that revolutionized rock music – is charged with killing actress Lana Clarkson in his Alhambra mansion Feb. 3, 2003. “This is a trial of public interest,” said Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler. “I always have a problem with commentators telling people what is going on rather than letting the public see the trial for themselves. I’m a firm believer in having the public see it.” Attorneys said they wanted time to consider the proposal. The next pretrial hearing is set for Feb. 16. Spector, who did not attend the hearing, has pleaded not guilty and is free on $1 million bail. last_img read more
