Scott Peterson´s preliminary hearing in the killing of his wife, Laci, and their unborn son was postponed this morning until September. Today, Judge Al Girolami set the preliminary hearing for September 9. Prosecutors say witnesses were not available next month.
The decision was reached during a scheduling hearing in Stanislaus County superior court over search warrants, wiretaps and a gag order. The hearing had been scheduled for July 16-18. Defense lawyers agreed to postpone it.
