A Sacramento TV station is reporting that just a week before Laci Peterson disappeared, her husband Scott Peterson may have told his mistress that he was a widower.

Ron Frey is the father of Amber Frey, who has admitted to dating Scott Peterson. Ron Frey told KOVR that Scott at first told Amber he was single. Then in mid-December, Frey said, Scott told Amber his wife had died the year before.

"He implied he'd lost her a year ago. He didn't say how," Ron Frey said. "What I was hearing was he was going to try to change his schedule so that in the future he could spend more time with [Amber]."

Laci Peterson was nearly eight months pregnant when she vanished on Christmas Eve.
