Death-sentenced murderer Scott Peterson wants new trial

(San Francisco, CA) — The attorney’s for convicted killer Scott Peterson want his death sentence overturned. During a virtual hearing before the California Supreme Court yesterday, attorneys argued media coverage tainted the jury. An attorney for the prosecution argued the case was very clear.

The court will return a judgment soon. Peterson has been on California’s Death Row at San Quentin prison since 2005 after being found guilty for the 2004 murder of his wife Laci Peterson and their unborn son.
