From Yahoo! news:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Legendary rock and pop record producer Phil Spector was detained on Monday in connection with the shooting death of a woman at a house in the Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra, police said on Monday.

"Shortly after 5 o'clock this morning Alhambra officers responded to a shooting call and discovered a female shot inside of the location," Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokeswoman Faye Bugarin said.

"She was pronounced dead at the scene and suspect Phillip Spector (the record producer) was taken into custody and is currently being detained," Bugarin said. "The body is still at the scene.

Bugarin said the identity of the victim was being withheld pending notification of her family and described her only as a white female. She said Spector had not been arrested.

Representatives for Spector, 62, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Spector, who began his career as a musician, is considered a pioneer in rock production and famed for his Wall of Sound technique that featured lush orchestration.

Among the groups Spector produced during the height of his career in the 1960's were The Teddy Bears ("To know Him Is To Love Him") The Crystals ("He's a Rebel"; "He's Sure The Boy I Love"; "Then He Kissed Me") Darlene Love ("Chapel Of Love"), The Ronettes ("Be My Baby"; "Baby, I Love You") The Righteous Brothers ("You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'"; "Unchained Melody") Ike & Tina Turner ("River Deep - Mountain High"). He would later produce The Beatles "Let It Be" album along with several of John Lennon's solo works. Brian Wilson has referred to Spector as one the major influences on his work.

o_O ... maybe hearing that he "butchered" Let It Be got to him? (shrug) He's, as far as I've heard, a psycho, so maybe this wasn't so unexpected... I'm still a little head-explodey over this, though.

Here's the official Web site for the woman he's charged with murdering:

Lana Clarkson/ Living Doll Productions

It gives a rundown of her movie resume, which includes Amazon Women on the Moon and Barbarian Queen among other more mainstream stuff.
