A journalist had unprecedented access to death row for a book she was writing.
NATIONAL ENQUIRER - Peterson moved to a "more relaxed" area of death row.
"Outraged former Boston prosecutor Wendy Murphy, who wrote about Peterson in her book,And Justice for Some, said, “As we approach the 10th anniversary of the murders, which will be so painful for Laci’s family and friends, this is like pouring salt on their wounds. “It’s unbelievable
his housing would be upgraded, as if he were staying in a fancy hotel. Whoever made the decision to move Peterson to his plush new digs needs is head examined.” After seven years of being caged in the notorious and dangerous main section of Death Row, Peterson gets to spend five hours
out of his cell each day, shooting hoops, jogging, playing cards or board games and enjoying other activities, Murphy said. Unlike his previous rowded accommodations, he now shares the unit with only 67 other inmates. He also gets to avoid stringent security checks, including strip
searches, whenever he comes and goes from his cell."
