Spector Mistrial!

9/26/2007 5:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Phil SpectorThe judge in the Phil Spector murder trial has declared a mistrial, as jurors announced they were hopelessly deadlocked.

In the courtroom today, the jury foreperson told the judge that they were deadlocked 10 - 2 -- with 10 jurors voting for a guilty verdict.

Prosecutors charged Spector with the murder of actress Lana Clarkson nearly five years ago. Spector's attorneys had argued Clarkson committed suicide.

A spokeswoman for the District Attorney told the LA Times "We will try Phil Spector again" and said her office was disappointed with the outcome of the trial

All parties will be back in court on October 3rd.

This is just as bad as Robert Blake getting away with murder. If the victim is considered unsavory, oh well.

Another star struck group of L.A. jurors! They don't have a brain amongst them. If anyone believes she went to his castle to kill herself they must be crazy! Hopefully the DA will try the case again..perhaps this time as first degree manslaughter.
