12:03 pm
if he gets a new trial. peterson was convicted of killing his wife and unborn son 20 years ago. kron four's charles clifford is live outside the courthouse for us in redwood city with the latest on this. and charles, what have you learned so far? >> well, the hearing is ongoing, although i believe they are about to take a lunch break. let's going take a look at some video from inside the court today. peterson did appear in person who's wearing an orange jumpsuit, a face mask on and peterson. as you mentioned, i was convicted of murder back in 2004 for killing his wife and unborn son was originally given a death sentence that was changed to life in prison. now his defense team is trying to get him a new trial and the crux of their argument is they claim one of the jurors in the original trial was rochelle nice. they say she's guilty of misconduct, that she misled the court during the jury selection process and that she had a bias again. scott peterson this morning, a peterson's defense tried to paint her as being unreliable. they showed you know, inaccurate statements over the
12:04 pm
course of time and pointed out that she it was not happy connor, the peterson's son had been killed. now the defense or the prosecutors said that michelle nyce richelle did her duty that she showed up that she did the best she could during the jury selection process and that she didn't know that he was going to assign to this trial originally. so she didn't come in with any sort of bias. now we're not expecting any sort of decision today from the judge. she has 90 days to make that decision in the end. if she agrees to give peterson a new trial, the entire process would start over his conviction to be thrown out if she denies the request for a new trial that scott peterson would go back to san quentin, presumably finish out his life sentence there. now we're going to stay here throughout the afternoon. hopefully hear from the defense prosecution, possibly some family a little later today and have that for you later on here on kron. 4. but that's the very latest here in san mateo county, charles clifford kron. 4 news. >> a lot of eyes on this story. thanks so much for staying on top of the force. charles. milpitas man is behind bars this afternoon for

12:20 pm
average. but 87 in santa rosa, 76 in oakland and 82 in san jose. so show you future cast and talk about what i was just saying where we get some of that unsettled weather coming our way. so this is saturday. you can see the weekend looks really nice. lots of sunshine out there. but as we get into that monday tuesday timeframe, notice we start to see those storms firing up again in this year. that will be looking out for a little instability to see if any of that moves towards us wouldn't really be concerned about rain, so to speak, but it will be more lightning that i would be watching out for. and your extended forecast. just to give you a look here. you can see we do see that temperature move up a little bit as we get through the weekend and even beginning of next week starting to see some of those inland communities get into those low to mid 90's. back to you. thanks very much, kyra. still ahead on the kron, 4 news at noon, a scary sight in the water and look at that. >> the shark seen swimming near a large group of people. why experts say, though, there's no danger here. and after the break, a disturbing voice message left on a local congressman's phone line threatening to kill him and his family as well as other democrats. his concerns ne
