Laci´s Family to Receive her Body Today

The bodies of Laci Peterson and her unborn son are set to be released today to family members. Laci Peterson´s husband, Scott, has pleaded innocent to charges that he murdered his wife. Her family held a memorial service in May. But they postponed the funeral plans.

Meanwhile, Scott Peterson´s defense attorneys have appealed a judge´s order that would let the public attend the hearing where prosecutors plan to lay out evidence against the accused killer.

A Stanislaus County judge ruled last week that the hearing would remain open, though he later banned cameras and recording devices. Peterson´s lawyer wants the state appeals court to overturn the judge´s order.

Peterson´s preliminary hearing is set for September Ninth.
