Topics and Guests: December 13

Get "On the Record" weeknights at 10 p.m. ET

It was a matter of life or death and now the jury has decided. After months of a sensational trial, the jury recommends that the state end Scott Peterson's (search) life. How will Peterson appeal his execution?

Go "On the Record" Monday night as we're live from Redwood City with:

• Jim Hammer, former San Francisco assistant district attorney
• Laura Ingle, KFI radio reporter
• Jeanine Pirro, Westchester County district attorney
• Bernie Grimm, criminal defense attorney
• Gloria Allred, attorney for Amber Frey
• Geoffrey Fieger, criminal defense attorney

Plus, we'll get reaction from Justin Falconer, dismissed Peterson juror No. 5.

And, horribly disfigured and partially paralyzed, was Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko (search) poisoned? We'll investigate the political power struggle that may have led one candidate to commit the ultimate crime with forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden and Dr. Robert Middleberg, lab director and chief toxicologist at National Medical Services.
