Judge Declares Mistrial in Spector Case

A judge declares a mistrial in the murder case against music legend Phil Spector.

The jury deliberated for 12 days taking six ballots, but still was unable to reach a unanimous verdict.

Jurors told the superior court judge they were split 10-to-2 without indicating which way they were leaning.

They added there was nothing the judge could do to help them arrive at a unanimous verdict.

Spector went on trial in April charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson.

The judge told attorneys to return to his Los Angeles courtroom Oct. 3 to discuss the next legal move.
