A reporter who was granted access to the death row wing where convicted murderer Scott Peterson is being held has released pictures and details of what is life on the inside is like.
Nancy Mullane became the first reporter to enter death row in California in almost a decade, something she worked tirelessly for years to achieve so she could write her book Life After Murder.
Speaking to Matt Lauer, she revealed she has been going inside San Quentin prison since 2007 when she was allowed to take pictures and talk to some of the inmates.
It was only later that she realized Peterson - who was convicted of killing his wife Laci and unborn child in 2004 - was in the pictures.
She told Lauer he has been moved to a more 'prisoner-friendly' wing of death row, where he has his own cell and is allowed up to five hours a day outside exercising or shooting hoops.
''He is in a very confined environment living in a tier of the building which is a more prisoner-friendly section of death row with 68 other inmates. He has access to the roof from his tier," said Mullane.
There are three death row sections in the prison - one with maximum security for 'problem prisoners', another generic wing where around 600 inmates live, and the more relaxed tier which Peterson shares with around 70 other convicts.
Scott Peterson filed an appeal of his 2004 death sentence to the California Supreme Court in July, saying, as he has always maintained, that he had nothing to do with the murders of Laci, his wife, and Conner, the child she was carrying.
Peterson's attorney, noted death penalty lawyer Cliff Gardner, filed the 423-page document eight years after a San Mateo County jury found the former fertilizer salesman guilty of suffocating Laci and dumping her in the San Francisco Bay on Christmas Eve 2002.
