the deed was in Scott and Laci Peterson's Name.
Correction. The deed IS in Scott and Laci's name. There has been no transfer of title or a Death Certificate filed. The transfer is not complete until the proper paperwork is complete. An affidavit of death, including a certified copy of the Death Certificate has to be filed to remove Laci's name from the title. This has not been done. The house, as to an undivided 1/2 interest, remains the property of Laci.
Right, RG, maybe that's the reason they were able to access the home and no charges were filed.

Thakyou Runningbear for the ping.
I think Sharon Rocha has been yanked around far too may times. If anyone has been a model of restraint in this case it is her. I think if this goes to a civil case, no resonable person could fault her, after being led to believe she would be given access to the home, to have it refused at the last minute was cruel beyond the belief.This obviouly was a important part of closure for her, to be jerked around by the Peterson's is the straw that broke the camels back.
My only concern is the Peterson's are going to try to use this a an appeal down the road,they have already said that they "suspect" the Rocha's could plant evidence against Scott. There is nothing Geragos would not do to win this case, including break Sharon Rocha's hold on sanity.

(A blank tag is a terrible thing to waste)
1/2 interest is in the house itself...Other interests like personal possessions do not necessarily become Scott's but may be divided among her heirs. It likely depends whether there is a will stating all goes to Scott.

Hey, RG! What's the hold up on the death certificate?
The house, as to an undivided 1/2 interest, remains the property of Laci.
I suppose until they issue a death certificate, then Laci is free to go in the house anytime she wants....Get a grip, they haven't even lynched the guy yet.
