Judge denies nearly all DNA testing requests from Scott Peterson's defense

A San Mateo judge ruled against all but one DNA testing request from Scott Peterson's defense on Wednesday, as he continues his legal fight to clear his name of murder. A jury convicted Peterson nearly 20 years ago of murdering his wife Laci and their unborn son Conner on Christmas Eve in 2002. Peterson appeared virtually from the Mule Creek State Prison where he is serving a life sentence. A judge overturned Peterson’s death sentence in 2020.
