Michael Peterson – convicted of murdering his wife
‘The Staircase’ Prosecutor Freda Black Dies at 57
Black tried the infamous Michael Peterson trial featured in Netflix’s ‘The Staircase’ documentary series.
One of the prosecutors who tried the infamous 2001 North Carolina killing featured in The Staircase documentary series has died.
Police say Freda Black, a former Durham assistant district attorney, was found dead in her home Sunday.
Durham police spokesman Wil Glenn said the 57-year-old’s death “does not appear suspicious at this time.” The body was sent to the state medical examiner for an autopsy.
According to USA Today, authorities were alerted to Black’s home after loved ones were unable to reach her and grew concerned. “She was found in her home during a welfare check by officers,” Glenn said. “Family members hadn’t spoken to her in a few days.”
Black gave closing arguments at the 2003 trial that ended with novelist Michael Peterson convicted of murdering his wife, who was found dead at the bottom of the staircase in their home in Durham. A judge later ordered a new trial, and Peterson entered a special plea in 2017 acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of manslaughter.
The case has received recent attention after Netflix distributed new episodes of the documentary originally aired more than a decade ago. The Staircase returned to Netflix with new episodes in June. – Source
