Scott Peterson, convicted in 2005 of murdering wife and unborn child, won’t face death penalty


Nearly two decades after Scott Peterson’s murder trial riveted the nation, a California district attorney says she won’t seek a new death sentence for him. Peterson was convicted in 2005 of killing his pregnant wife and unborn son, and his previous death sentence was thrown out last year. He maintains his innocence, and a judge is deciding whether to grant a new trial.
