Peters Receives Life Sentence


Lima, OH (WIMA) - 27 year-old Christopher Peters was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Monday in Van Wert County Court.

The Times-Bulletin says Peters was sentenced by Judge Martin Burchfield for life in prison on one count of aggravated murder, and a consecutive eight years on each count of felonious assault, and endangering children.

Peters was found guilty on all counts in September, for the death of 15-month-old Hayden Ridinger, who was found unresponsive by his mother, on the morning of November 15th in 2016, at the couple's apartment at the Old Lincoln Inn near Delphos.
