Scott Lee Peterson (2004)
Charged With: First-degree murder
The Trial: The murder of Laci Peterson was one of the most mind-boggling murder cases of the ages. On December 24, 2002, a pregnant California woman was reported missing from her Modesto home. The murder mystery case quickly picked up national attention when Amber Frey, who had begun dating Scott Peterson, told police officials that he had mentioned he was a widow two weeks before his wife’s alleged disappearance.
Outcome: On March 16, 2005, Peterson was sentenced to death.
