Valot had killed Peter thinking that he had cheated on her. However, there was no evidence that he was in an affair, cheating on her.
She had appealed her conviction and was granted a new trial. In 2005, she was proved guilty of second-degree murder and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. She is being held at the Chino, California-based California Institution for Women.
After eight years in prison, Valot was denied parole, but she maintains her innocence and refuses to reveal the location of Peter's body.
