DREAD 'TAKING TOLL' ON AMBER


MISS STRESS: Amber Frey has been busy preparing for the birth of her baby while dreading the inevitable call to ex-lover Scott Peterson's trial, her dad says. - ZUMA Press

DREAD 'TAKING TOLL' ON AMBER

By HOWARD BREUER

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

March 15, 2004 -- LOS ANGELES - Scott Peterson's former mistress Amber Frey is carrying two burdens these days: the baby boy that's due within a few weeks and her obligation to take the witness stand in her ex-lover's double-murder trial, her father says.

Frey, 29, and her live-in boyfriend, Dr. David Markovich, a chiropractor, are due to become parents in late April. The judge wants to have a jury by April, but defense efforts to move the trial a second time could slow things down.

Although Frey doesn't expect to be forced to testify before she delivers her baby, she's still stressed over the trial, her father said.

"She has to testify and confront the person she was in love with once," Ron Frey, 52, said. "It takes its toll on her."

Trial observers expect that defense attorney Mark Geragos will leave no stone unturned in trying to discredit her. Although she didn't know Scott was married or that his wife was about to give birth to a boy, prosecutors say Peterson was so in love with Frey that he murdered his wife to be with her.

Days after Laci's disappearance on Christmas Eve 2002, Frey became an informant and tried to get Peterson to explain his actions as the cops bugged their phones.

Lately, Ron Frey said, his daughter has been leading a very busy life.

She's about to graduate from an esthetician program so she can do facials and hair removal. She still works as a massage therapist. She spends the latter part of the day with her 3-year-old daughter and with Markovich.

Although the pregnancy was unplanned, "she's just tickled pink," her dad said. "So's Dr. Markovich."

Although she's a fitness nut, Frey is too far along to get to the gym these days, her father said, adding that she's planning to stop working within a couple of weeks and focus on feathering her nest.

Her dad said he's impressed with the way Markovich carries himself, with his abilities as a chiropractor, and with his parenting skills.

"He has the patience and what it takes to be a high-quality father," said Frey, who hopes .....

PAGING DR. SHEPPARD: SCOTT'S 'FUGITIVE' DEFENSE

PAGING DR. SHEPPARD: SCOTT'S 'FUGITIVE' DEFENSE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SCOTT PETERSON Lawyer looks to the past.

March 15, 2004 -- LOS ANGELES - As Scott Peterson's attorneys prepare to argue for another change of venue, they're hoping the case of Dr. Sam Sheppard - whose claim that he was wrongfully accused of his wife's murder inspired "The Fugitive" - will aid in their cause.

"This case is Sheppard redux," a source close to the defense said this week.

Jury consultant William DeHaven, who consults with Peterson attorney Mark Geragos, said he's currently reading books about the Sheppard case and is astounded by the similarities - a factor that should work heavily in Geragos' favor.

For example:

* Attractive suburban housewife Marilyn Sheppard and Laci Peterson were pregnant when they were murdered.

* Hours after Marilyn Sheppard was discovered dead in 1954, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, Coroner Samuel Gerber assumed that her husband killed her, causing police to focus their investigation on him. Geragos has waged the same complaint against Modesto, Calif., police.

* During Sheppard's retrial, Coroner Cyril Wecht of Pittsburgh said Gerber botched the original probe. Wecht has been retained to testify for Peterson's defense

* Prosecutors in each case focused on the fact that the victim's husband was having an affair. One newspaperman observed that Sheppard was tried for murder but convicted of adultery.

* Sheppard quickly lost the battle in the court of public opinion, which reached its own verdict long before the trial. Geragos said last week that the judge must take steps to ensure that Peterson's jury isn't tainted by pretrial publicity.Howard Breuer ..........

Peterson video contains no case clues, man told

A videocassette with footage Scott or Laci Peterson likely took in 2002 was stolen from their home shortly after she disappeared, the man who found it said police told him.

Whether the film contains evidence or will be used in Scott Peterson's double-murder trial remained unclear Friday.

Eddie Gibson of Modesto said Thursday that police Detective Doug Ridenour told him the videotape revealed no link to the pregnant woman's Christmas Eve 2002 disappearance.

But authorities on Friday stayed silent about a burglary of the home shortly after Laci Peterson disappeared. Gibson found the camera a day later.

Gibson described footage of household items on the tape, including jewelry -- a topic of apparent interest to Scott Peterson's attorney, Mark Geragos. He questioned two witnesses about Laci Peterson's jewelry during her husband's preliminary hearing in October.

The 31-year-old fertilizer salesman faces the death penalty if convicted of murdering his wife and unborn son. Possible jurors are being screened in Redwood City, where the trial was moved after crushing media coverage in Modesto.

Gibson said he can't remember if the footage of the jewelry showed a date. That portion of the tape appeared to be consistent with an inventory of valuables for a homeowner policy, he said.

At Scott Peterson's preliminary hearing, the Petersons' housecleaner confirmed seeing jewelry on a bedroom counter the day before Laci Peterson went missing. That testimony came under questioning by Geragos. The housekeeper, Margarita Nava, said she could not remember if Laci Peterson wore jewelry that day.

Also at the hearing, Amy Rocha, Laci Peterson's sister, agreed under Geragos' questioning that the sisters had inherited a "substantial amount" of jewelry from their paternal grandmother three weeks before Laci Peterson vanished.

Geragos' intent regarding the jewelry was unclear. He called no witnesses during the hearing.

"The Perfect Husband," a made-for-television movie that first appeared last month on the USA Network and was supposedly based on the Modesto case, indicated that Scott Peterson had given some of his wife's jewelry to his girlfriend. However, sources have told The Bee that account is not accurate.........

Although the pregnancy was unplanned, "she's just tickled pink," her dad said. "So's Dr. Markovich."

Uh, huh. I wonder if the chiropractor feels manipulated.

Or, an old TV show as a defense! I imagine I hear the music from "The Fugitive" right now. "The one-armed man he saw running from the scene... " Oh, brother.

Shepard left behind a son, who has worked vigorously to clear his dad's name. (I'm not convinced... but I think I understand that the son was devoted to the one parent he had left; I pity him.) Peterson, now HE wasn't so sloppy as to leave behind a son...

"Frey, 29, and her live-in boyfriend, Dr. David Markovich, a chiropractor, are due to become parents in late April. "

No, they're not "due to become parents."
Parents are a married and cohesive unit to raise children. These people are intentionally depriving their progeny of that benefit.

What amazes me is that after she already has one child out of wedlock, and the father is nowhere in the picture, she gets pregnant AGAIN while unmarried at the age of 28...she is not responsible enough to protect herself from pregnancy and disease??

And don't forget, this gal let Scott, a man she had only met two weeks previous at a bar, pick up her precious child from school.

Then a month after Laci goes missing, she hooks up with someone else and gets knocked up.

This woman is a fast worker. What's her secret?

Also shouldn't your reply read

Did you get hitched yet? I don't know how long you were single so don't know how you are adapting. Long as you have your own bathroom things will be ok.

Shacking up with another man and accidently getting pregnant. Sheesh.

Amber keep those long gangly legs closed.

Dr.????? She is shacked up with a Dr?

Sorry but spinal adjustment is just one step up from massage therapy.

Certainly not a 10yr stint in school and internship.

Oh and he is looking forward to the unplanned child? Yeah right, men just get delighted when their sperm accidently swim into an egg.

Her daddy always paints such a pretty picture of his lil girl.

Amber is a skanky Ho!

I don't buy into the victimization of Amber idea.

If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas. If she was foolish enough to fall prey to Peterson's lies, she should be amazed that she is still living... look what he did to his wife!

She is only a victim, because of her own stupidity.

Her fifteen minutes of fame will soon be up. Her name does not have enough cachet to bring her anything but a footnote. Won't she be remembered as the adulteress?
