A judge in Modesto, California agrees that Scott Peterson cannot get a fair trial in his dead wife's home county.

The judge ordered the trial moved out of Stanislaus County, where defense lawyer Mark Geragos argued that Peterson has been demonized.

He's accused of murdering his wife Laci and their unborn son.

The trial is scheduled to start Jan. 26, but is now likely to be delayed.

Prosecutors insisted that fair jurors could be found in the county.

And they blamed much of the publicity on Geragos himself, and what they described as his "media grandstanding."
