In the lengthy battle with Laci Peterson’s husband over the $250,000 life insurance policy, a judge in modesto, California has awarded the proceeds to Laci’s mother, Sharon Rocha.
Laci’s husband, Scott Peterson, who was convicted of killing Laci and their unborn child Christmas eve of 2002, maintains he is innocent and refuses to give up the claim while his case is appealed but California law states that people who kill their spouses forfeit their inheritance rights.
The Petersons had taken out life insurance policies on each other on June 25, 2001 and a year and a half later, Laci disappeared leading to a massive search that resulted in her body being found in San Francisco Bay.
