In the early morning hours of February 3, 2003, Lana Clarkson was murdered by Phil Spector in his Alhambra mansion. It took two trials for Spector to be convicted on April 13, 2009. Spector was sentenced on May 29, 2009 to 19 years to life for Lana's murder.
This was the case that launched Trials & Tribulations. It's where I met Dominick Dunne, former DDA Alan Jackson and Beth Karas, all of whom became long time friends.
To this day, when I see pictures of this beautiful, vibrant woman, I'm instantly back in front of her niche at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and the peaceful place where she is laid to rest. Saying a prayer today, for Lana and her family.
