Scott Peterson Back in Court Today

Sponsored by:

There´s a hearing today on various motions in the Laci Peterson case. Her husband, Scott Peterson, is charged with killing his wife and unborn child.

Some news organizations have asked that cameras and microphones be allowed in the courtroom for Peterson´s preliminary hearing next month. They also want it open to the public.

Peterson´s lawyers disagree, saying an open hearing could hurt their case. Prosecutors have a pending motion to survey potential jurors to determine if Peterson can get a fair trial.

Peterson´s lawyers have indicated they plan to request a change of venue.
