Peterson-Pen-Link

By  | 

A Lincoln company is reluctantly playing a part in the high-profile trial of Scott Peterson in California.

Peterson is accused of killing his wife Laci and their unborn child.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Thursday, when court officials will summon an initial 200 residents for questioning.

Monday, the judge closed his doors to hear from two officials with a Nebraska company. That company is Pen-Link Limited. It helped investigators sort through some of the calls recorded during the first months of 2003.

Pen-Link makes computer software used to analyze information from phone records and wiretaps. One of its clients is a California law enforcement agency. It loaned Pen-Link equipment to Modesto Police, who used it to tap Peterson's home.

Company President Michael Murman says his company never meant to get involved.
