Imprisoned wife killer Peter Demeter, once a millionaire Toronto businessman, has lost his first bid for freedom in 20 years. The Parole Board of Canada says the 85-year-old murderer, who is serving five life sentences, remains a threat, despite his age, because of his history of scheming to hire criminals to carry out murders, abductions and other crimes at his behest. In 1973, Demeter hired a hitman who bludgeoned his fashion model wife Christine to death in the garage of the family’s upscale home in Mississauga, Ontario.
Once-moneyed murderer Peter Demeter (above), a killer who “oozes evil,” has given up on freedom. For the fifth consecutive time in the past 10 years, the imprisoned psychopathic senior citizen has told the National Parole Board not to bother holding a hearing at which he could beg for release. A hearing had been scheduled for this month, but Demeter waived his right to plead for freedom. It appears that the former real-estate developer, now 76, has accepted that he’ll die behind bars, in part, because he refuses to admit that he hired an assassin who split open his wife’s skull on July 18, 1973, in the garage of the couple’s upscale Mississauga, Ontario, home.
