SCOTT Peterson was convicted of murdering his wife in 2002.

It was thought that his motive behind the murders was his desire to be with his girlfriend Amber Frey.

Why was Scott Peterson on trial?

The San Diego native was convicted of murdering his wife, Laci Peterson, and her unborn child after she was reported missing back in December of 2002.

His arrest came in April of 2003 when the remains of a woman and fetus were found on the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay, only a few miles from where Peterson had said he was on the Christmas Eve she went missing.

Following his arrest, Amber Frey, a Fresno massage therapist, came forward about their affair that started in November of 2002 and later testified that Peterson told her he was a widower.

The prosecution claimed that Peterson had used the same cement used on his driveway to make anchors that pulled his wife's body to the bottom of San Francisco Bay.

The jury later convicted and sentenced Peterson to death.

Where is Scott Peterson’s former mistress Amber Frey now?

Frey, now 46-years-old, has gone on to return to somewhat normal life following the Scott Peterson trial.

Today, she is still a practicing massage therapist (as she was when she first met Scott Peterson).

She formerly owned a day spa in California, but Euphoria Day Spa went bankrupt in 2015.

She's a mother of two children: Ayiana Frey and Justin Dean Markovich.

Ayiana's father is Christopher Funch, a restaurateur. Her former boyfriend Anthony Flores paid years of child support for Frey under the guise that he was the father of Frey, but a paternity test revealed that Funch was the father.

In 2006, Frey married police officer Robert Hernandez but the couple divorced in 2008.

Frey released a book titled Witness: For the Prosecution of Scott Peterson, in January of 2005.

In 2020, the California court system overturned the death penalty for Scott Peterson and ordered a new trial. However, Allred said that Frey was "relieved" that his guilty verdict was not overturned. 

Was Scott Peterson resentenced?

In a court hearing on Wednesday, December 8, Peterson's death sentence was overturned but Judge Anne-Christine Massullo instead sentenced him to life in prison without parole for the first-degree murder of Laci Peterson.

He received an additional 15 years to life for the second-degree murder of their unborn son, who was to be named Conner.

The case was revisited after the California Supreme Court found that jurors in the 2002 trial, who noted they did not believe in the death penalty, were dismissed.

Laci Peterson's mother, Sharon Rocha spoke at the trial and said her unborn grandchild would have been 18 years old and Peterson would have been free from child payments by now.

"You didn't want the responsibility of being a father. You're a coward," Rocha said.

"Laci and Conner will always be dead," she added.

"And you will always be their murderer."
