In Scott Peterson’s relationship with ex-girlfriend Amber Frey after she was ‘relieved’, the killer will not get a new trial

SCOTT Peterson’s ex-girlfriend Amber Frey has spoken out against her former lover years after their six-week tryst became the center of a notorious murder trial.

Peterson met Frey when the two went on a blind date, and she later became a key witness for prosecutors after he killed his wife and their unborn child.

Two days ago, a California judge announced the latest updates in the case stemming from the shocking December 2002 disappearance of Peterson’s wife.

He was arrested in April 2003 after the remains of her body and fetus washed up on the shore of San Francisco Bay.

At the conclusion of the media-hyped trial, the San Diego native Peterson received a death sentence in 2004, which was overturned in 2020 due to jury misconduct.

His team called for a new trial but was shot down just three days ago, prompting Frey to say, “The truth doesn’t change with time.”

Frey was a key part of the trial as she briefed the jury on her shocking affair, which happened just a month before his wife’s disappearance.

“It’s reassuring to hear that Scott Peterson won’t be getting a new trial,” she said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

“I would have been willing to testify again. However, I am relieved that my testimony will not be necessary.

“If called to testify, I would again testify truthfully, for truth does not change with time.”

HIDDEN MATTERS

Frey said she met Peterson through a mutual friend who met him at a recent conference.

Frey was a massage therapist in Fresno, and Peterson, who gave up his dreams of becoming a professional golfer to chase after his wife, worked as a salesman.

As far as Frey knew, Peterson was single like her, and the two had gone on a blind date in November 2002.

Just a few weeks later, the pair were snapped together at a Christmas party.

At the party, Peterson said his wife Laci had passed away and, according to Frey, it would be his first Christmas without her.

Police would later consider whether this was a reference to the murder, which he may have already planned, Rolling Stone reported.

On December 30, 2002, Frey saw an article in the newspaper about Laci’s disappearance and immediately began working with the police to find more information about her boyfriend.

She secretly recorded over 29 hours of their phone calls to see if she could extract any information from the man while police were investigating him.

Once he told Frey that he was spending New Year’s Eve in France. In reality, he was at Laci’s vigil.

SHOCKING PROCESS

In April 2003, Peterson was arrested when the bodies of his wife and unborn child were discovered.

Prosecutors said he took his wife’s body from Modesto on Christmas Eve 2002 and dumped it from his fishing boat into San Francisco Bay, where it was later found.

They told jurors that Scott either choked or strangled Laci before wrapping her body in blue target.

The court also heard that prosecutors said he used the same concrete he bought for her driveway to anchor the body in the bay.

Meanwhile, the defense admitted to the affair and focused its case on the lack of concrete evidence.

They also presented theories that Laci was killed and urged the jury to acquit Peterson so they could find the real killer.

Peterson’s trial lasted from July 1, 2004 to November 12, 2004.

After seven days of deliberations, including the replacement of two jurors, the jury finally found Peterson guilty and sentenced him to death.

FAILED ATTEMPTS

While Peterson remains in prison, he was able to have his death sentence overturned last year after the California Supreme Court ruled that jurors at the trial who found they did not believe in the death penalty were dismissed.

He was then sentenced to life in prison – but that small win wasn’t enough.

The defense appealed for the trial to be retried after alleging that Jury No. 7 Richelle Nice was biased because she herself was involved in a domestic violence case.

His attorney, Cliff Gardner, argued that Nice lied to get on the jury that eventually convicted Peterson in 2004 and put him on death row.

The defense team learned that she had been beaten by a friend in 2001 while she was pregnant.

She did not disclose that she obtained a restraining order against a friend’s ex-partner during another pregnancy.

Nice claimed she was never a victim of a crime or involved in a lawsuit, ABC News reported.

Then, in 2017, during an interview with 20/20, she said her situation never crossed her mind when filling out her application.

But just two days ago, California Superior Court Justice Anne-Christine Massullo announced that she would not grant Peterson a new trial, despite Nice’s failures.

Massullo released a 55-page decision stating that while Nice acted out of emotion and made “honest mistakes,” she had no inherent bias toward Peterson.

“The court finds that several of the answers given by jury number 7 on her jury questionnaire were incorrect in certain respects,” she wrote.

“The court concludes that juror No. 7’s answers were not motivated by pre-existing or improper prejudice against the petitioner, but were the result of a combination of a good faith misunderstanding of the questions and a sloppy answer.”

Janey Peterson, Peterson’s sister-in-law and an outspoken defender of his, said her brother-in-law “is innocent” and “did not have an impartial jury.”

“We will not stop fighting until Scott is free and we find out who murdered Laci and Conner,” she wrote in a statement Tuesday.

“20 years ago this week, Laci Peterson was spotted alive walking her dog after Scott left for the day. Sometime after this walk, evidence showed that she encountered men who broke into the house across the street. These men kidnapped her and later killed her.”
