The Phil Spector Trial: We Watch Court TV So You Don’t Have To (06/22)

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY LA criminologist Lynne Herold, the prosecution’s last witness, was back on the stand yesterday after a daylong recess. Herold spoke at length about the blood splatter from the gunshot that killed Lana Clarkson. First, she testified that blood was found on the left inside pocket of Spector’s white jacket. Also, a small spot of blood found on the jacket proved to have traveled only two or three feet maximum before landing, meaning Spector was close to Clarkson, and according to Herold’s opinion, facing Clarkson. Clarkson was also seated when she was shot, which beared similarity to some previous witnesses.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR Bad. Herold is the prosecution’s big gun, and she’s wrapping up months’ worth of forensics jargon and evidence into a nice little guilty verdict. Herold is scheduled to face the defense today.

HAIR & MAKEUP UPDATE Spector, still sporting his new wig, wore a gray jacket, canary yellow shirt, and a shiny, electric blue tie that screamed “I’m so getting off the hook.”
