A prosecutor asked a judge Tuesday to sentence music producer Phil Spector to 19 years to life in prison for his second-degree murder conviction in the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. Although the mandatory sentence is 15 years to life, Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson said in his motion that four years should be added for personal use of a gun - a circumstance that can draw an extra three, four or 10 years. Spector, 69, a legend in the world of rock music, was found guilty April 13 by the second jury to hear his case. His first trial ended in a jury deadlock. Clarkson, who starred in the 1985 cult film "Barbarian Queen," died of a gunshot fired in her mouth as she sat in the foyer of Spector's mansion in 2003.
