Scott Peterson Sentenced to Death
A California judge today sentenced Scott Peterson to die for murdering his wife and son.
The California judge in the trial of Scott Peterson said on Wednesday he agreed that the former fertilizer salesman should be sentenced to death for the murder of his wife and unborn son in a case that attracted nationwide attention. Superior Court Judge Alfred Delucchi was to formally sentence Peterson on Wednesday after hearing from family members. Speaking at the start of the proceedings, Delucchi called Peterson “cruel, uncaring, heartless and callous” and said he agreed with the jury’s death penalty sentence.
One hopes another California judge doesn’t overturn this, discovering that the death penalty suddenly violates the state constitution.
