SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Scott Peterson could be sentenced to life in prison after the 2002 murder of his pregnant wife and unborn son. A year ago, the California Supreme Court ruled that his jury was improperly screened for favoritism toward the death penalty in a case that has since shocked the world. Prosecutors chose to settle this time for life without parole. Wednesday’s hearing is expected to be brief but potentially emotional. It may include statements by Peterson and family members of Laci Peterson, 27. She was eight months pregnant when she was killed carrying a boy the couple intended to name Connor.
