LATEST: Phil Spector's former lawyer has told the jury at the music producer's murder trial she witnessed a forensic scientist remove a small white object from the scene of shooting victim Lana Clarkson's death.
Sara Caplan made her testimony at Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (13Jul07), after being held in contempt of court in June (07) for refusing to give evidence.
Caplan would have been sent to jail if she had refused to take the stand.
She told the jury the same story she had told an evidentiary hearing in May (07) - that defence expert Dr. Henry Lee picked up a white object and placed it in a vial.
Caplan testified the object was larger than a fingernail fragment missing from the scene.
Lee has denied any wrongdoing.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of Clarkson at his Alhambra, California home in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
The trial continues.
