Scott Peterson Death Penalty Trial Begins

Jurors are hearing evidence in the penalty phase of Scott Peterson's murder trial. The prosecution gave its opening argument, the defense has reserved the option to make one at the beginning of its case. Only four witnesses will testify for the prosecution, all members of Laci Peterson's family.

Update: Because this is a defense site, we will not be commenting or providing news updates of the prosecution's evidence in the death phase. We're not even following the tv versions--prosecutor analysts are a dime a dozen. We're not a fan of victim impact evidence and firmly believe that jurors should be life-qualified at the beginning of a capital case, not death qualified. We'll return to the case when Geragos begins presenting evidence in support of a life sentence.
