The double-murder trial of Scott Peterson will be staying right where it is.

A judge in Redwood City, California has ruled against a motion by defense attorney Mark Geragos for a second change of venue. Geragos had claimed the trial is taking place too close to the alleged murder scene to find an impartial jury.

Prosecutors opposed another move for the trial.

In denying the motion this morning, Judge Alfred Delucchi said he felt confident Peterson could get a fair trial in Redwood City.

Jury selection has been taking place for more than two months.

Peterson could face the death penalty or life without parole if he is convicted of the murders of his wife, Laci, and their unborn son.
