Former San Francisco prosecutor Jim Hammer, who has been observing the trial in Redwood City, said the amount of time the judge has reserved for the motion is significant. “If you’re arguing a motion, that...

He enters a makeshift command center for volunteers and works quietly, answering e-mails, making phone calls, talking to volunteers.</p>

    As the widespread search for Laci Peterson continued Monday, nine divers spent a second consecutive day focusing on a small section of Lake Tulloch. Sheriff's divers from Stanislaus and Calaveras counties concentrated in the area under O'Byrnes Ferry Bridge at the border of Tuolumne and Calaveras counties. Patrick Kelly, a member of the Stanislaus dive team, said he didn't know whether a tip or evidence might have pointed investigators to Tulloch, but nothing had been found there so far. Police did not return calls seeking comment about the Lake Tulloch search effort Monday. At an afternoon news conference, police said...

Police reviewed the tapes after a clerk came forward late last week to say she believes she saw a missing, pregnant woman. Police said they are continuing to interview the clerk. Meanwhile,...
