    Phil Spector has been denied by the Supreme Court. The judges refused to review the producer's murder conviction and he will remain in jail as a result.

    Spector was sentenced to 19-years-to-life in 2009 for the second-degree murder of Lana Clarkson. He was appealing against his conviction, arguing his trial was unfair. His team claimed that the trial judge had intervened unfairly in a witness' testimony, violating Spector's constitutional rights.

    But earlier this week, officials at the Supreme Court refused to review the case, as is their right, so the guilty verdict remains in place.
