Spector exhibited no reaction to the verdict. His lawyer argued that he should remain free on bail pending the May 29 sentencing but Judge Larry Paul Fidler remanded him to jail immediately.
Second-degree murder carries a penalty of 15 years to life in prison.
Spector's young wife, Rachelle, sobbed as the decision was announced.

...found guilty of second-degree murder.
This news arrived in my email today from Publisher's Lunch:
Following yesterday's conviction of Phil Spector on second-degree murder in the death of actor Lana Clarkson, agent Sharlene Martin of Martin Literary Management reports she is shopping a proposal for a "tell-all memoir from adopted son Louis Spector," THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE ON LA COLLINA DRIVE: My Life Caged Behind Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. Louis and his twin brother "were adopted at the age of five by Spector and presented to Spector's then unsuspecting wife as a surprise Christmas gift."
