LAWFUEL – The jury in the Phil Spector murder trial have been shown the revolver that was found at the feet of the deceased.
The bloody gun, was produced by Los Angeles County sheriff’s Det. Mark Lillienfeld. The snub-nosed Colt Cobra revolver was not registered and never definitively linked to Spector, though prosecutors argued he used it to shoot Lana Clarkson in the mouth on Feb. 3, 2003, Associated Press report.
The defense lawyers argue that Clarkson shot herself. She had accompanied Spector to his Alhambra mansion after meeting him at her job as a hostess at the House of Blues just hours before her death.
The detective also showed jurors photographs to point out a holster in an open drawer of a bureau near the spot where Clarkson’s body was found slumped in a chair in the ornate foyer of Spector’s castle-like mansion. The holster also fit the gun, Lillienfeld testified.
