Phil Spector found guilty of actress' 2003 murder

* Story Highlights
* NEW: Defense says it will appeal; "We don't believe justice was done"
* Phil Spector guilty of second-degree murder at retrial
* He faces 15 years to life in prison for shooting death of Lana Clarkson
* Renowned music producer accused in death of actress in 2003

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- After about 30 hours of deliberation, a jury on Monday convicted music producer Phil Spector of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson more than six years ago.

Wearing a black suit with a red tie and pocket square, Spector showed no reaction as the verdict was announced. Now 69, he faces a sentence of 18 years to life in prison when he is sentenced May 29.

Asked if he agreed to the sentencing date, Spector quietly answered, "Yes."

Prosecutor Alan Jackson said he believed the jury reached the correct verdict, and he acknowledged the strength and backing of Clarkson's family. But defense attorney Doron Weinberg said Spector's defense team disagreed and planned to appeal.

"We don't believe justice was done," Weinberg said.

Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler declined to allow Spector to remain free on bail pending sentencing, citing Spector's years-long "pattern of violence" involving firearms.

"This was not an isolated incident," Fidler said, noting Spector's two previous firearm-related convictions from the 1970s. "The taking of an innocent human life, it doesn't get any more serious than that."

Spector's wife, Rachelle, was in the courtroom to hear the verdict Monday, as was Clarkson's mother, Donna.

Clarkson, 40, was found dead, slumped in a chair in the foyer of Spector's Alhambra, California, mansion with a gunshot wound through the roof of her mouth in February 2003

wouldnt a gunshot wound through the roof on the mouth be indicative of a suicide?

or of a drug addled old producer with a history of violence and gunplay against women.

who admitted to his driver that he just shot her right after it happened.

very interesting case though, theres a lot of detail only the jury can know for sure.

Interesting read. A bit weird how they go from the spector story to his career and gear so abruptly.

Ive caved to some weird sexual requests by some girls but I think I would draw the line if she wanted to pull one of my guns out.
