Peterson Trial: Deliberations, Day 2

Jurors in the Scott Peterson double murder trial enter a second day of deliberations today.

The panel met for about four hours yesterday, their first day of deliberations.

They are being sequestered until they reach a verdict.

Prosecutors say Peterson killed his pregnant wife, Laci, and dumped her body in San Francisco Bay.

Defense attorneys say he was framed.

Peterson´s defense lawyers finished up their closing arguments Wednesday.

They told the jury there´s little evidence to tell if Laci Peterson´s fetus died before or after being born.

They say if it was afterward, that would mean Peterson couldn´t have committed

the crime because he was being monitored by police.

But prosecutors say the theory of a frameup isn´t reasonable.
