LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The defense is to finish its closing argument today at the trial of music producer Phil Spector.
Then prosecutors get a chance to rebut the defense's statement before the jury is instructed and begins deliberations.
The judge says it's possible the jury won't get the case until Monday.
Spector is accused of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson, who was killed by a gunshot fired into her mouth at Spector's mansion.
Defense lawyer Linda Kenney-Baden told jurors yesterday that prosecutors presented a black-and-white view of the world in which the music producer is a bad man and Clarkson was a good woman.
She says the idea was to try to make jurors believe Spector must have shot her by portraying Clarkson as a sympathetic character.
