Peterson Defense Tries to Show Lack of Evidence

September 15, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Scott Peterson's defense lawyer promised jurors during opening statements that testimony would show police found "zip, nada, nothing" in their investigation that would implicate Peterson in the killing of his pregnant wife.

On Tuesday, attorney Mark Geragos hammered that point in his cross-examination of a witness who testified she found no blood on any of the tattered clothing on the remains of Laci Peterson that washed up on the shore of San Francisco Bay months after she disappeared.

Peterson is accused of killing his wife about Dec. 24, 2002, then dumping her body into the bay.
