LATEST: A DNA expert testifying in the murder trial of music producer Phil Spector has criticised the methods used to remove blood samples from the alleged crime scene.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of actress Lana Clarkson at his Alhambra, California mansion in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
DNA expert Marc Scott Taylor told the court how criminologists collected the specimens - but criticised the use of adhesive paper Post-It notes to envelop the samples, which he conceded is not an ideal method of transporting evidence in such a case.
Richard Munisteri, lawyer for club House of Blues where Clarkson was working as a hostess at the time of her death, testified the 40-year-old was earning $9 (GBP4.50) per hour as a hostess in the venue's V.I.P room.
It is thought Munisteri's statements could support claims Clarkson was depressed with her career at the time of her death.
The trial continues.
