I've got mixed feelings. He probably deserves it for what he did. But I still don't believe in the ole eye-for-an-eye. Life in prison without parole would do.

If the sentence is reduced to life in prison w/o parole.... will it be really w/o parole??? What are his chances of being paroled?

I'm just wondering because I don't want him to be free. Laci can't live her life anymore, why should he?

Tough call but the lethal injection is too good for him.

It may be harsh- but he deserves it. How could he kill her knowing his son is alive inside her. I mean he could of just got a divorce if he wasn't happy. And they found him at the mexican border w/ his hair dyed and how many thousands of dollars in his pocket? When all this first came out, I was pregnant w/ my first child, my daughter Kai and I use to think about all the things she could do and grow up to be- and that little boy never got the chance at even his first breath.

This is a touchy subject......I normally would not support death sentences, but in this case it's different because I am a mother of three boys. I just don't know how someone can take a baby's life. That's just wrong.....evil. Even if they were to give him life w/o parole.....how long would he last in prison? He would probably die sooner that way. Either way he is doomed in this life and the after life. That's just wrong...... Poor baby didn't even have a chance.

I am one who usually goes for the death penalty...to me..its good they gave it to him...but the thing I expected was life..because there was nothing that made it truely black and white he did it...circumstantial evidence convicted him. I, for one, believe he did it...just didn't think a jury would pull that off...

Laci and the baby are gone...and thats a shame..when people like him can walk this world amoungst us...nothing will bring them back....but at least he will pay a price for his evil ways

This is a very touchy subject - and today for the first time..members of the jury were able to speak to the public. Just thinking about what their lives have been like for the last 6 months - and knowing that their lives will now forever be changed because of their civic duty. When asked why did they choose the death penalty - they very plainly said that the issue of trust was violated between a husband and wife. This man seemed to premeditate his wife's death - the man that was supposed to protect her and her son.

Their are no winners here at all...it is still a very sad day and this family, who no one knew 2 years ago, now will never be forgotten.

RIP Laci and Connor Peterson

Absolutely.. No one wins in these situations. Nothing anyone does at this point will ever bring Laci and her son back

I would so love to say that I favored death, and upon instinct that would be true... but I think for this man; since he wanted to live the "Bachelors" life of party and seduction, let him live it in a cell for the rest of his life. Death is too easy and it wont bring Laci and Conner back.

Peace be with Laci's family and those that loved her.

Only thing wrong with this is Jeffrey Dalmer was killed by fellow inmates a few years ago.

Good idea would be to put in him in a cell with Michael Jackson, when he goes to prison. That would really make money on a pay-per-view.

The man is a slimebag and is PROBABLY guilty, but there is
a tiny element of doubt in my mind. The evidence was all
circumstantial; there were no witnesses, and as far as I
know, no forensic evidence. I would never execute anyone
convicted on only circumstantial evidence, just as I would
never execute anyone on the testimony of a jailhouse
informer.

Not to Downplay the Significance on Laci's Murder But...

Why is this case drawing so much attention?

As sad and horrible as it is, it's not a unique case. Remember Rae Carruth? He killed his pregnant girlfriend. It was a case very similar to the one against Scott Peterson. But it didn't generate even half of the publicity, and Carruth was a celebrity having played for the Carolina Panthers.

Of course it isn't just this type of case. Elizabeth Smart's case wasn't unique either, but look at that publicity.

Not to stir a racial debate but looking at the victims in the Peterson and Smart cases, I have to wonder.

Just think that if this man just got a divorce, paid child support and alimony he would be a free man, living with the woman of his choice.

How stupid can you be...

Your right bad, I live in the bay area where the trial was held and thought the same thing. Right when Laci dissapeared there was a Mexican lady that was 8 months pregnant who also went missing on christmas eve. It was also thought that her bf was the one guilty, but that case did not get 1/10 of the attention that the peterson case recieved.



As far as the death penalty, I have a lot of mixed feelings about it. My father worked as a Native American Spiritual advisor on death row in the state prisons here in California. He witnessed first hand what they endured psychologically and how it affected their chikldren and families. Most are kept on death row for 20 years + before they are executed.
