The sister of Scott Peterson said “justice has been served,” a day after Peterson was re-sentenced to life in prison for the 2002 killing of his wife.
Anne Bird said that Scott appeared “vacant and emotionless” as she watched a live stream of the court proceedings.
Peterson was resentenced to life without parole Wednesday during the hearing in which family members of his slain pregnant wife, Laci, called him out for the killing in 2002 and his apparent lack of remorse.
The California Supreme Court ruled a year ago that his jury was improperly screened for bias against the death penalty in a case that gripped the world then and since.
Prosecutors opted to settle this time for life without parole.
