Amber Frey, the former girlfriend of convicted wife-killer Scott Peterson, may lose her Clovis home after falling behind on mortgage payments. Fresno County records show Frey, who testified against Peterson as the prosecution's star witness during his double murder trial, was more than $16,000 behind in payments on her $539,000 house by May. Frey took out a $431,000 loan three years ago to buy the home.

Days after a 28-year-old woman admitted having an affair with him, Modesto fertilizer salesman Scott Peterson publicly acknowledged the liaison, and said he told his pregnant wife about the relationship before she disappeared Christmas Eve. But Peterson said it did not rupture his marriage to Laci Peterson and again denied a role in her monthlong disappearance.

Scott Peterson's fondness for golf remains a running theme in the penalty phase of his murder trial, as friends and relatives continue to cite his love for the game while urging the jury to spare the convicted murderer the death penalty. Robert Thompson Jr., who teaches accounting and agricultural business at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, said Peterson was an A student, made the dean's list three times and, "when we played golf, he'd bring along cigars."

Three defense witnesses testified Friday that Scott Peterson was a man with redeeming qualities who could benefit others in prison if the jury spared his life. Conception "Coni" Fritz, the mother of one of Scott's closest childhood friends, recalled him as a "gentle man, a caring, sweet and loving boy, someone I was proud to have as my son's friend," during a half-day session of the penalty phase of Peterson's double-murder trial.

A detective who spent Christmas Eve questioning Scott Peterson and the next four months trying to find his missing wife testified Wednesday about how officers had enlisted Peterson's friends, neighbors and mistress in the effort to snare him. Detective Al Brocchini said he had called friends of Scott and Laci Peterson to point out news articles about his extramarital affair and a $250,000 insurance policy that Peterson had taken out on his wife.

A 28-year-old woman came forward Friday to confirm that she had a romantic relationship with the husband of Laci Peterson, the pregnant Modesto woman who disappeared a month ago. Amber Frey, a single mother, told reporters gathered at the Modesto Police Department that she met Scott Peterson, 30, at a Nov. 20 party in Fresno. "I was introduced to him. I was told he was unmarried," Frey said. "Scott told me he was not married."

Friends of Laci Peterson testified Monday that pregnancy had forced her to stop exercising, as prosecutors tried to discredit her husband's story of what happened the day she vanished. Scott Peterson has said that his wife planned to walk the couple's dog the morning he left for a solo fishing trip and returned to an empty home. Prosecutors, who charge that Peterson murdered his wife and their fetus, contend that she stopped walking the dog weeks before, at her doctor's urging.

If W. Mark Felt, who outed himself this week as the almost mythic "Deep Throat" of Watergate, writes a book as has been speculated, few believe it would ultimately be of great historic value. Other than the mystery that has long surrounded the identity of the Washington Post's informant, there is little else that isn't already known about the scandal that toppled the Nixon presidency, some academics said.

He doesn't know Scott Peterson's mind, but Dean Cain had to try to put himself into it. TV's former "Superman" portrays the Modesto man accused of killing his wife, Laci, and their unborn child in "The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story," a USA Network movie premiering Friday. The teleplay starts on Christmas Eve 2002, when eight-months-pregnant Laci was reported missing, and follows related events up to Scott's arrest last April.
