LATEST: Phil Spector's alleged affinity for guns was raised again yesterday (09May07) as a fourth woman testified against him at his murder trial.
Melissa Grosvenor backed up an earlier claim the music producer had held a female photographer hostage at gunpoint by describing how he did the same to her.
Grosvenor, who met Spector in New York in 1991 and dated him for a year and a half, told Los Angeles Superior Court, "He walked up, held the gun to my face between my eyes and said, 'If you try to leave I'm going to kill you.'"
She added, "I was shocked. I started crying. ... I was afraid. There was no doubt in my mind if I tried to leave he was going to kill me."
Her testimony formed part of the prosecution's efforts to show Spector had a pattern of pulling guns on girls.
He stands charged with shooting actress Lana Clarkson dead at his Alhambra, California home in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
The trial continues.
