After failing to reach a verdict on the third day of deliberations, jurors in Scott Peterson’s murder trial retired Friday for a weekend in a hotel where the judge has barred them from discussing the case.
Judge Alfred A. Delucchi has decided to allow them to deliberate only Monday through Friday. Over the weekend, they can order meals from a hotel menu but can’t watch television, except for sports and movies ordered from a court-approved selection. They are not allowed visitors. Watching over them will be 21 court bailiffs.
