The prosecution claimed they were after their parents' $14.5 million dollar estate. They were convicted of murder.
EXCERPT FROM PHIL SPECTOR
The judge's decision in both trials was to allow evidence of prior acts by Spector involving women and guns. Female witnesses at both trials described Spector waving guns at them or other women, especially if he’d been drinking a lot.
Devra Robitaille, Spector’s former girlfriend and employee, testified that he threatened her when she wanted to leave two separate parties, one in the 1970s and the other in the ‘80s. In the 1986 one, she testified that he was "screaming, ranting and raving: 'You're not going. You're not leaving. I'm not opening the door... I'll blow you away. I'll shoot you.’” Spector was convicted of murder.
