LATEST: The jury at the Phil Spector murder trial has heard how both the music producer and shooting victim Lana Clarkson had drugs and alcohol in their systems at the time of the actress' death.
The Los Angeles Superior Court trial heard from two toxicologists, both defence witnesses, on Tuesday (17Jul07), who told the jury Spector had ingested anti-depressant Prozac and anti-seizure drugs Topamax and Neurontin, as well as alcohol.
Spector suffers from hand tremors, as the result of the medication, and his defence team argued this condition means he could never have fired the gun that killed Clarkson.
The jury also heard how Clarkson had alcohol and the painkiller Vicodin in her body at the time of her death in February 2003, and that the combination of Vicodin and booze can cause impaired judgment, impaired care and sleepiness.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of Clarkson at his Alhambra, California mansion. He has pleaded not guilty.
