One should remember that sensitive young children probably don't need to know all the grisly details of a capital murder trial. They probably also don't need to know that a man would premeditate to strangle and kill his very pregnant wife, then dump her and their unborn baby boy named Conner into the ocean for flesh-hungry sharks to eat, until their headless, armless bodies are washed ashore for beachcombers to find. They especially don't need to know that the only reason the bastard did this was to be free to pursue a relationship with his skanky, adulterous girlfriend. Even if they ask. They don't need to know. I mean, nightmares would be a given, right?
Seriously, what kind of mother would tell her kids this story?! Even if they totally asked?! Not me. No sir.
Oh. Me. I would.
No, really. Why have I not been arrested?
ETA: I suppose Scott Peterson's girlfriend wasn't technically his "skanky, adulterous girlfriend." More like "unknowingly adulterous, and a tad skanky." Poor dupe.
