“California prosecutors will once again seek the death penalty for Scott Peterson in the murder of his wife, Laci, and their unborn son,” according to the New York Post.

“Peterson, 47, who remains on death row in San Quentin State Prison, learned the bad news Friday, while participating via video in a Stanislaus County court proceeding.

“Peterson’s first death sentence — from 2005 — had been overturned in August by the California Supreme Court due to juror misconduct…

“Laci, 27, disappeared Christmas Eve, 2002 while eight months pregnant with their unborn son, Connor.

“Investigators say Peterson murdered them in their home in Modesto, then dumped them from his fishing boat into San Francisco Bay, where they surfaced nearly four months later.”
