The mother of Laci Peterson sued her son-in-law for more than five (m) million dollars today in the deaths of her daughter and unborn grandson. Sharon Rocha says that Scott Peterson´s conduct was “willful, wanton and outrageous beyond the ability of ordinary human beings to comprehend.”
Rocha filed suit in Stanislaus County Superior Court.
Authorities say Peterson murdered his pregnant wife and dumped her body in San Francisco Bay. Rocha says she wants to prevent Peterson from profiting from the case and she is asking the court to set aside future earnings in a trust for Laci Peterson´s heirs. Rocha has said she once thought the world of her son-in-law. The lawsuits contain her harshest public words about the former fertilizer salesman.
