The jury in Phil Spector's murder trial may get the case Friday. If convicted, the famed rock music producer could face 15 years to life in prison.

Spector is accused of second-degree murder in the 2003 killing of actress Lana Clarkson. Prosecutors allege that Spector killed Clarkson, an actress who was working as a hostess at the House of Blues. From the outset, an array of defense attorneys have countered that Clarkson committed suicide.

The trial has lasted more than four months.
