The prosecution began closing statements Monday morning, saying Spector was a man who liked to play /*Russian Roulette*/.
Prosecutors say actress /*Lana Clarkson*/ was his unlucky victim, allegedly shot and killed inside Spector's Alhambra mansion in 2003.
The defense maintains Clarkson shot herself.
Superior Court /*Judge Larry Paul Fidler*/ has given this jury the choice of convicting Spector of a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter. Involuntary manslaughter is an unintentional killing.
But the prosecution is pursuing a conviction of second-degree murder, the same charge that resulted in a deadlocked jury in the first trial in 2007.
Prosecutors will try to convince the jury that the 69-year-old producer fired the fatal shot as Clarkson tried to leave his home.
If Spector is convicted of manslaughter, he faces as little as two to four years in prison.
A conviction of second-degree murder could mean a sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Second-degree murder is an act with gross negligence and consciously taking the risk of killing someone.
