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.
but he could of over lent his portion to his parents therefore, he has no more interest pending property appraisal to the remainder! Or as Sharon Rocha's attorney stated, scotty lost... and he most likely did it unethical, but not sure..... Probate can get very ugly!!!!
Why does her half transfer only to her mother and none of it to her father? I saw him once talk out about Laci -- it was very moving.
