Peterson Arraignment This Morning

Stanislaus County´s top prosecutor says Scott Peterson bled in the cab of his pickup truck after killing his pregnant wife.

Stanislaus County District Attorney James Brazelton says in court papers that he wants jurors to view the pickup truck as part of the crime scene because it was used to haul Laci Peterson´s body to San Francisco Bay. Prosecutors refuse to return the seized truck to Peterson´s family.

The defense says Peterson has a right to his property and continues to pay more than 600 dollars a month in auto payments.

Lawyers will argue about the matter today when Peterson is arraigned on two counts of first-degree murder in the killings of his wife and unborn son. The court papers are the first mention that Peterson may have been wounded in the killing.
