"It normally would have gone to Scott Peterson after his wife's death. But under the state law, someone who murders a co-owner "has no rights by survivorship."

Following his murder convictions, Peterson retains his stake in the home, but his wife's half transfers to her mother, Sharon Rocha, attorneys specializing in probate and real estate law said. Last year, a judge appointed her administrator of Laci Peterson's estate.

This is what I had thought since California is a community property state.

Because Scott was convicted of murdering Laci he is not entitled to her half but he still maintains his half.

Thanks, RB!

I'd rather see SP receive life in prison, practicing his yoga positions among the general prison population.
