Pregnant wife killer Peterson gets life term instead of death row

Scott Peterson, the man who was found guilty for double homicide of his wife Laci Peterson, who had been in the eighth month of pregnancy, and their soon to be born son has been resentenced to life imprisonment, according to TMZ.
In August 2020 the Supreme Court of California has canceled his death sentence as it was aware of the erroneous dismissal of jurors who stood against the most severe punishment for the murderer. The case had been consequently sent to further consideration.
On Wednesday a court ruled that Peterson would stay in jail for life with no chance to be released as he has received two sentences of the first- and the second-degree murders.
