Personally, I think he's guilty, so I think this is the correct verdict. That's just me.
From the MSNBC story:
Judge Alfred A. Delucchi met with attorneys Friday morning in chambers and emerged to announce that the jury had reached a verdict.
Deliberations resumed Friday after the jury took Veterans Day off, which came after two straight days of juror dismissals, the latest in a series of hitches in the nationally watched case.
On Wednesday, Delucchi dismissed the foreman, a man in his mid-40s who has medical and law degrees. The judge did not disclose his reasoning. Juror No. 5 was replaced by an alternate whose future son-in-law now owns a restaurant that Scott and Laci Peterson once owned in San Luis Obispo, and the newly reconstituted jury began deliberating that day.
That action came a day after the removal of another juror who apparently did her own research on the case, violating the judge's order to consider only evidence presented at trial. Each time a juror is dismissed, the panel must begin deliberations anew.
