Costs to investigate, arrest and prosecute Scott Peterson for the murder of his wife, Laci, have topped $2.1 million in the couple's hometown of Modesto and in Stanislaus County, government officials estimated this week as they try to have state taxpayers pay the bill. Acrimony over costs is also growing between Stanislaus County and San Mateo County, where Peterson was convicted last week of killing his wife. San Mateo County officials said Stanislaus County still owes it more than $250,000.

Race was a factor when Cal State Stanislaus officials decided two years ago to release a white basketball coach, a jury has found. Former men's basketball coach Mike Terpstra was awarded $540,000 after claiming his contract was allowed to expire because the university wanted a black coach. Terpstra was replaced by another white coach, but witnesses testified that black administrators had lobbied for a black coach.
