    The re-trial of Phil Spector in the murder case of actress Lana Clarkson ended in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday. A jury found Spector guilty of second-degree murder, which means he now faces anywhere from 18 years to life in prison, barring an appeal.

    The legendary producer's wife, 28-year-old Rachelle, wept as his fate was read, but Spector "took it very stoically," according to defense attorney Doron Weinberg. "He wanted to know what is next."

    Spector's original trial ended in a deadlocked decision, with just two jurors opposing his conviction. This time around, the jury's forewoman appeared remorseful and said to the Associated Press, "It just is a painful decision. For anybody in our shoes, you have no idea. It's tough to be on a jury."

    As for Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson's response to the proceedings, he said, "It feels fantastic. This is the type of day prosecutors live for." When asked why Spector did it, he simply replied, "Rage."
