'Brilliant and charming'

Testimony from the first witness, Dorothy Melvin, settled into a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" description of Spector, with the defendant described as a compelling and romantic suitor and a genius, who changed into something else. Prosecutors said the other side was "a raging maniac."

"Phil is a really brilliant and charming man, and you really enjoy him when he’s in his charming mode. Then when he’s drinking," Melvin testified today. "He snaps. He turns on a dime and becomes a lunatic." 

Defense finishes its opening statement. Bruce Cutler argues that the scientific evidence will show that Lana Clarkson died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
