Wednesday, Oct. 29: Back in Court

Scott Peterson (search) is in court for his preliminary hearing. What’s the new evidence that’s going to come out? Are there any surprises left? We’ll get the legal breakdown from Jim Hammer, San Francisco prosecutor, and David Wise, San Francisco criminal defense attorney.

Plus, does the case against Peterson rely on two strands of hair? We’ll investigate the evidence with forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden.

As the Santa Ana winds continue to cause havoc for California firefighters, we’ll get a progress report from Rick Martinez, chief deputy director of the California Office for Homeland Security and Sacramento County fire chief.

We’ll get a firsthand look at the situation in Iraq from FOX News correspondent Mike Tobin.

And, is Congress close to wrapping up the multi-billion dollar aid package for Iraq? We’ll ask Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., and Gordon Smith, R-Ore.

Plus, how on earth did New Jersey caseworkers miss the starvation torture of four boys that was right under their noses? We'll ask Lisa Clampitt, former child-protective caseworker.
