The jurors deliberating Phil Spector's murder retrial were asked if publicity surrounding the case would interfere with their final verdict in court on Monday (06Apr09).
The panel members returned to the case on Monday after a juror's illness brought proceedings to a halt last week (ends03Apr09).
Their deliberations were halted as the judge overseeing the retrial asked them if they had been exposed to publicity about the case.
Two jurors confessed they had overheard TV and radio reporting of the case, but neither had taken much notice of what was being said.
Both insisted that the reports would not effect their decision.
Music mogul Spector is accused of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson, who died from a gunshot wound to the head in the foyer of the producer's Alhambra, California mansion in February, 2003. The trial continues.
