LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff's detectives will not be ready to present a case against music producer Phil Spector at his scheduled court date next week, nearly six months after an actress was shot to death in his mansion, the lead investigator said Tuesday.

Spector, 62, whose "wall of sound" recording technique transformed 1960s pop music, was arrested for investigation of murder after the body of actress Lana Clarkson was found in the foyer of his mansion in suburban Alhambra on Feb. 3. He is free on $1 million bail.

Sheriff's Lt. Dan Rosenberg said Spector's bail is likely to be extended for another month while the investigation proceeds.

"We're still waiting to get all of the reports back from the crime lab," he said.
