District court upholds Whyte 2007 stabbing conviction

Email

The overwhelming evidence of Peter G. Whyte's guilt in killing Suzanne Weiland in August 2006 makes any alleged error in admitting hearsay evidence harmless, ruled an appeals court.

In a decision released Tuesday, Wisconsin's District III Court of Appeals affirmed a St. Croix County jury's verdict, convicting Whyte, 54, of second-degree intentional homicide. He is currently serving a 40-year term in Waupun Correctional Institution.
