Judge Rules Laci Peterson’s Life Insurance Money Goes To Mother

Modesto, CA — A judge has ruled that the quarter million-dollar life insurance policy that Scott Peterson had taken out on his wife will go instead to her mother.

A Stanislaus County Superior Court judge said Friday that because Scott Peterson was convicted of killing his pregnant wife, Laci, and the fetus she carried, he is not entitled to collect the benefits of her life insurance policy. Under state law, criminals cannot profit from their crimes.
