SAN QUENTIN, California–Scott Peterson’s life on death row is now being revealed.

Nancy Mullane, author of ‘Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption,’ is one of the people who got a look inside the San Quentin prison that houses Peterson, who was convicted of killing his wife, Laci, and their unborn son.

According to what Mullane revealed to Geraldo Rivera, Peterson is living in a single cell in an exclusive part of the prison. Mullane also told Geraldo that the convicted killer spends time outdoors, playing basketball. This is how she described Peterson when she saw him: “I saw this quite, I would have to say, buff-looking young man with his shirt off. And he was playing basketball. He looked like you were watching some college athletes out on a neighborhood court play basketball.”

Some death row prisoners have to spend 23 hours of the day inside their cells, according to what Mullane told Geraldo.

Peterson was sentenced to death in March, 2005. He has never taken responsibility for the deaths of his wife and unborn child.
