    START OF THE MONDAY QUARTERBACKING DECISION:Courttv Blog4:00 p.m. PT In an apparent move to avoid the crowd of reporters and citizens outside the courthouse, the jurors are taken out of court through an underground parking garage instead of their usual exit on the sidewalk. Beth Karas and I are standing outside the garage when the two sheriff's vans pull out. I can see the Teamster seated in the front passenger seat of the first van. A photographer from the Modesto Bee is standing with us and he begins taking photos. The court officer driving the first van slams on the...

    What will death row be like for Peterson? A considerable amount of mail flows into my cell from people out there in the world asking what it's really like living day-to-day on San Quentin's Death Row. I'm always tempted to quip, its's a hell f a lot better than dying here. But then I really don't know if that's true -- yet. I answer every letter even if the writer is rapidly pro-death penalty. It's easy for me to understand their attraction to the concept of killing convicted murderers. In the abstract, the death penalty has an elegant Newtonian --...

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - A jury decided Monday that Scott Peterson (news - web sites) should be executed for murdering his pregnant wife, Laci, whose Christmas Eve disappearance two years ago was the opening act in a legal drama that captivated the nation. A cheer went up outside the courtroom as the jury announced its decision after 11 1/2 hours of deliberations over three days. The jury had two options in deciding the 32-year-old former fertilizer salesman's fate: life in prison without parole or death by injection. Peterson clenched his jaw when the verdict was read and leaned over to...

It would tear our family apart."But jurors showed no expression, some...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- He was a philandering husband convicted of the shocking murder of his young and very pregnant wife. His name wasn't Scott Peterson, though. It was Todd Garton, and in 2001, a California jury said he deserved to die. "I signed the document that the jury found for death and I think about that a lot," said Fred Castagna, who served as jury foreman. "It was emotional during deliberations, but I don't lose sleep over it." If the experience of Castagna and others involved in death penalty cases is any guide, the jurors in Peterson's murder trial will...

    I haven't seen anything lately about some stories that SHOULD still be turning up in the news.Whatever happened in the Robert Blake murder case? Last I heard, they were ready to charge someone, (Blake, I think.) And how about the windshield-hit-and-run driver? Haven't heard a word about her. And Condit declared that he wouldn't go to the Grand Jury right now, postponing it for later. Who gets to do that? Certainly not you or me!

    On the evening of May 4, 2001, actor Robert Blake (Baretta, In Cold Blood) and his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, ate dinner at an Italian restaurant in the Studio City section of Los Angeles. Afterward, according to Blake, the couple walked the block and a half to their car, whereupon Blake realized he'd left his gun inside the restaurant -- a gun he was carrying because Bakley believed her life was in danger. Blake left Bakley in the car and walked back to the restaurant. Nobody in the restaurant remembers Blake actually retrieving anything: He apparently drank a glass of...

    Cops: Blake's Gun Was Used in Wife's DeathBy JIM CROGAN in Los Angeles and MAKI BECKER in New York Daily News Writers The gun that Los Angeles cops say was used to kill Robert Blake's wife has been traced back to the actor, police sources have told the Daily News. The serial number on the murder weapon, a .38-caliber Walther PPK handgun, had been filed off. But using techniques straight out of the CBS show "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," forensic sleuths were able to read the number and trace the gun to Blake, the sources said. Robert Blake did the...

This declaration from Detective Ronald Ito--along with a copy of the note found in Caldwell's Jeep--was filed yesterday (5/1) in L.A. Superior Court. (4 pages)     < 1 2 3 4 >

    LOS ANGELES -- A judge granted defense lawyers a later hearing date of Nov. 13 for the preliminary hearing for Robert Blake and his bodyguard. The two are charged in the shooting death of the actor's wife on May 4, 2001. Lawyers for Blake and his bodyguard joined forces Monday to demand that their preliminary hearing be postponed until November, saying they are overwhelmed by evidence just disclosed by prosecutors in the murder case. The attorneys said newly disclosed evidence includes a taped conversation between Blake's slain wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, and an unidentified person she was encouraging to murder...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The California Supreme Court has ordered Los Angeles' sheriff to explain why actor Robert Blake should not have a bail hearing before going on trial for the May 4, 2001 murder of his wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley. The high court ordered the sheriff's department, which runs the county jails and investigated the murder, to show the trial court the evidence supporting a special charge of "lying in wait" against the 69-year-old former star of the "Baretta" crime-fighting TV series. The special charge makes Blake ineligible for bail. The justices ordered the sheriff's department to show "whether...
