Sentencing day is Wednesday for Scott Peterson, but his lawyer is making a last-ditch plea for a new trial.

Peterson was convicted last year of killing his wife and unborn son. The jury set his penalty at death. He'll be formally sentenced this week after a hearing.

His lawyer's motions to set aside the verdict are expected to be made public Monday, along with the prosecution's response.
