The problem is that Peterson's current defense asserts Richelle Nice, a member of the panel, lied in order to get on the jury, so she could help find the defendant guilty. Judge Marie Sovey Silveira denied the petition.

Almost four months later, Laci's remains and the body of her unborn son, with the umbilical cord still attached, washed up on a rocky shore of San Francisco Bay.

Scott Peterson has won a round in his ongoing appeals.

E! News can confirm the California Supreme Court ordered a re-examination of Peterson's 2004 convictions for killing his pregnant wife and unborn son on Wednesday, Oct. 14. When asked about it Nice told CNN, "I'm not making any comments".

His attorneys have previously claimed Nice deceived the judge to get on the jury for the high profile case. What she did was file a restraining order against her boyfriend's ex on account of harassment.

In a case that garnered worldwide attention, Peterson was convicted in 2004 of first-degree murder of his 27-year-old wife Laci Peterson, who was eight months pregnant.

"Someone who has gone through an experience where someone was threatening their unborn child will probably have a perspective on charges brought against a defendant for harming an unborn child", Cliff Gardner, an attorney for Peterson, told Reuters on Thursday.

The fetus washed up first and had a nylon rope around the neck and a large cut on the body. This included the fact that he had been close to the area the bodies were found on the day of Laci's disappearance; had visited the crime scene repeatedly; was in possession of tarps covered in gasoline and fertilizer both of which allegedly destroy DNA and his testimony regarding the cooking show Laci was watching as he left and the rain which stopped him from continuing fishing do not align with the date.

Investigators said that over 10,000 tips, considered parolees, and convicted sex offenders were chased as possible suspects. Scott Peterson had been having an affair with Amber Frey, a massage therapist from Fresno. The state Supreme Court found that "the trial court erroneously dismissed many prospective jurors because of written questionnaire responses expressing opposition to the death penalty, even though the jurors gave no indication that their views would prevent them from following the law - and, indeed, specifically attested in their questionnaire responses that they would have no such difficulty". They claim she was too willing to be on the jury!
