Phil Spector Trial Temporarily Halted


The murder trial of Phil Spector was halted April 30, when one of the defense attorneys sought medical attention.

Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler did not provide a reason why Bruce Cutler consulted a physician, but told jurors that court would reconvene May 2.

Spector, 67, famous for his "Wall of Sound" production technique, is accused of fatally shooting actress Lana Clarkson in February, 2003.

He met Clarkson at the House Of Blues in Hollywood, where she was a hostess. Prosecutors allege Spector did not mean to murder the 40-year-old actress, but caused her death through reckless behavior.
