Family Exhausted After Peterson Trial

A friend says Laci Peterson´s family is physically and emotionally exhausted after Scott Peterson´s trial.

But Kim Petersen — no relation to the family — says the relatives also know that the nearly two-year ordeal isn´t over yet. Scott Peterson will be formally sentenced in late February and his lawyers are already planning to appeal his conviction and sentence.

Kim Petersen tells N-B-C the family may have something to say publicly after the first of the year about the jury´s recommendation that Scott Peterson be sentenced to death. She says the family appreciates the jury´s commitment to the

trial, which lasted more than six months.

The family spokeswoman says the pain will ease for Laci Peterson´s mother, Sharon Rocha, but it will never go away entirely.
