Peterson Pre-Trial Hearing Today

A court appearance is scheduled today for Scott Peterson, the Modesto man accused of killing his wife, Laci, and their unborn child. The pre-trial hearing is expected to be wide ranging.

One issue is whether search warrants related to Peterson´s arrest should be unsealed. Three newspapers are asking a judge to make the documents public. There may also be a discussion of wiretaps placed on Peterson´s phone. Documents related to the wiretaps have also been sealed.

Peterson´s attorney may also seek to have the trial moved from Modesto to another location.
