Scott Peterson has been sentenced to death for killing his wife and their unborn child.
Before pronouncing sentence in Redwood City, California, the
judge denied a defense request for a new trial. The defense argued
that jurors improperly experimented with the boat prosecutors say
Peterson used to dump his pregnant wife's body in San Francisco
The jury that convicted Peterson recommended that he die for the
crimes committed more than two years ago.
Peterson was shackled at the waist when he came into court this
morning. Family members from both sides were there as well.
