WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: We're just getting this word in from Modesto, California. The judge in the Scott Peterson murder trial has refused to throw out the charges.
You're looking at pictures only a few minutes in the courtroom. Scott Peterson's attorney, Mark Geragos, had asked that the charges be dismissed. Not a huge surprise, the judge deciding not a good idea to dismiss those charges or to throw those charges out. The trial will now go forward.
We'll get some more information on what else may have happened in the courtroom and bring it to you as we get it. Thanks very much for that.
