Peterson to Face Death Penalty

Scott Peterson will face the death penalty in his trial for allegedly killing his wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn son, Conner. Stanislaus County Prosecutor James Brazelton says he made the decision late Friday after consulting with Laci Peterson´s family.

Peterson is accused of killing his pregnant wife and unborn son just before Christmas at their Modesto home. Peterson was arrested last Friday days after his wife´s and son´s body washed up on the shores of San Francisco Bay.
