Jury Recommends Death Penalty for Peterson
A CNN report says -- Laci Peterson's stepfather said Scott Peterson "got what he deserved" when the jury in his murder trial recommended Monday that he die by lethal injection for killing his 27-year-old pregnant wife.
Law enforcement officials said they have a strong case against Scott Peterson in the killings of his wife Laci and unborn son, and that if he is convicted in a trial, they will likely seek the death penalty. (Looks like that is what is has happening now.)
There is a lot written about this case, and the Oregonian recognizes that Abortion Laws are Related to the Death Penalty -- Oregon Democrats push making murder of a pregnant woman punishable by death; the GOP objects, saying it is two murders.
