Phil Spector to Release His Wife's Debut Album

Convicted murderer Phil Spector is releasing the debut album of his 29-year-old fourth wife, Rachelle. Out of My Chelle -what a clever title- will be available on June 8. "She's fantastic on this album," Spector said in a statement. This is the first album he has recorded in over 30 years. Spector, 70, is currently serving jail time for the 2003 shooting of Hollywood actress Lana Clarkson, and he produced his wife's tracks during his two murder trials.
Spector married his much, much, much younger wife merely three years after the shooting. The couple worked on the album for more than two years between his first trial, which ended in mistrial in 2007, and his second, which ended in conviction last year. So a little thing like a trial for murder doesn't get in Spector's way when it comes to getting work done. He is serving a minimum of 19 years in the slammer for the crime.
Do you think it's sort of heinous for Spector to have been able to work on music while on trial for murder?
