Scott Peterson breaks his silence after more than a decade behind bars


Convicted murderer Scott Peterson is speaking out for the first time in over a decade.

For the first time, he's revealing what went through his mind after being convicted of killing his wife and unborn son.

A new A&E documentary captured the statements from Peterson.

"It was just like this amazing, horrible physical reaction that I had. I couldn't feel my feet on the floor. I couldn't feel the chair I was sitting in. My vision was even a little blurry," he said in comments published by People Magazine.

Peterson still claims his innocence saying, he had no idea it was coming.

Peterson's wife, Laci Peterson, vanished on Christmas eve in 2002 and her body was discovered in the San Francisco Bay in April 2003.

Peterson is currently in the San Quentin Prison where he's waiting to die under the death penalty.

A&E will air the new series "The Murder of Laci Peterson," on August 15th.
