Police Claim Man’s Sexuality May Have Been Motive For Him To Kill Wife – How Does He Respond?

Michael Peterson says he was convicted of murdering his second wife, Kathleen, for three reasons.

“They convicted me because of blood. They convicted me because of bisexuality, junk science … and there was an awful, awful, awful lot of press coverage, and it was not favorable at all,” he tells Dr. Phil on Monday’s episode.

Peterson, who served eight years in prison but was set free in 2017, defends his innocence. In the video above, he claims his wife knew about his sexual “tendencies” and that it was not an issue in their relationship, let alone a motive for him to kill her.
