Peterson Jury: Sequestered For Weekend

Sponsored by:

Still no decision.

The Scott Peterson jury will resume deliberations Monday morning at the courthouse in Redwood City.

The panel ended its first full day of deliberations yesterday with no decision on his punishment for murdering his wife and unborn son.

The jury began deliberating Thursday after hearing closing arguments in the trial´s penalty phase.

The jurors must remain sequestered in a hotel over the weekend, as they were when deliberating Peterson´s guilt or innocence.

The jury can choose one of only two recommendations: life in prison without parole, or death.
