LATEST: Music producer Phil Spector will not be taking the stand at his murder trial in Los Angeles.
During a hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (21Aug07), the 67-year-old told Judge Larry Paul Fidler he agreed to waive his right to testify.
Spector's decision has allowed the defence to tentatively rest its case, although further witnesses may be called at a later date.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of Clarkson at his Alhambra, California mansion in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide. The trial continues.
