Peterson Sentencing

By  | 

Drama in the courtroom at the hearing, in which, Scott Peterson was formally sentenced to death for killing his wife and unborn child.

In upholding the jury's recommendation of death, Judge Alfred Delucci called the killings of Laci and Connor Peterson "cruel, uncaring, heartless and callous."

When victim statements were given, a shouting match broke out between members of Scott Peterson's family and Laci Peterson's family.

Peterson himself had the chance to speak, but didn't. The judge did not allow his parents to testify.

Before sentencing the judge denied a request for a new trial.
