Scott Peterson: Yes, He Had Affair

Scott Peterson admitted this morning he was having an affair last year before his pregnant wife vanished from their Modesto home. He claims he told his wife and the police about the liaison – and he denies killing her.

Peterson spoke in an interview with ABC News´ “Good Morning America.” Peterson says he and his wife were dealing with the affair – and it was not something that would break them up. Laci Peterson disappeared on Christmas Eve. Scott Peterson told police he was fishing at the Berkeley Marina at the time and his wife had planned to walk their dog that morning.

He says he had absolutely nothing to do with her disappearance, and also said there is no proof she´s been killed. Police have not named him as a suspect. But attention has focused on him, in part because of the affair. Last Friday, Amber Frey came forward and told reporters she had a romantic relationship with Peterson. She says he told her he was single.
