WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY? Detective Mark Lillienfeld, who fronted the LAPD’s investigation into Lana Clarkson’s alleged murder, took the stand. What followed was Court TV’s version of MTV Cribs, as the jury took a painstakingly detailed tour of Phil Spector’s mock castle. The jury also heard the laborious introduction into evidence of every artifact from the crime scene, including the murder weapon. Spector was especially active in court today; he abandoned his trademark slouch for more alert posture, and showed interest in every exhibit.
IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR? Lillienfeld’s first day on the stand didn’t tip the scales in either direction.
HAIR AND WARDROBE UPDATE: Spector wore a breezy chalk white jacket with a cerulean collared shirt.
