Rarely has any murderer in Canada been so thoroughly castigated by a judge as was money-loving Toronto real estate developer Peter Demeter. A man charged with hiring a hitman to kill his glamour model wife Christine Demeter while she is in the house with the couples 3 year old daughter. Battered to death in the garage by what police believe to be a hammer, although the weapon was never found. “Your evil knows no bounds,” Mr. Justice John O’Driscoll said as Peter Demeter was marched from the dock to jail.
“In my opinion, this man should never, ever, ever, be released on parole,’’ the judge said.
It appears that will indeed be the case for Peter Demeter, who on April 19, will turn 86 years old behind bars. Demeter has suffered a stroke, heart attack and been treated for cancer during his 40-plus years in prison.A murder that contains all the elements of a Greek tragedy, lust, love Jealousy, betrayal. A case that is not as simple as it seems, Christine Demeter, a men’s magazine model when Peter Demeter met her, not known for her warmth and someone who doesn’t deny her main motivation in life in money. Starts looking for someone to kill him so she can get the life insurance money as she takes out a million dollar policy on him but he finds out and does the same. Both Peter and his wife were having affairs, Christine preferred body builders at the local gym and Peter was seeing another centre fold. After finding his wife had put a hit on him, he hired a Hungarian Hitman to erase his her (it's only fair), it is his friend who recommends the hitman but also his this friend who ends up being the police snitch who turns in his friend .
