Woodside murder case: Accused pleads not guilty

 

Pooroushasb "Peter" Parineh, a resident of unincorporated Woodside and a real estate investor, pleaded not guilty on Nov. 2 to a charge of premeditated murder for financial gain in the April 13, 2010, shooting death of his wife, Parima Parineh, San Mateo County prosecutors said.

Mr. Parineh, 66, remains in the county jail on a no-bail status and entered his plea before Superior Court Judge Lisa Novak, who set Dec. 16 at 8:45 a.m. as the time to determine a date for a pretrial conference and jury trial, prosecutors said.

Ms. Parineh, 56 at the time of her death, had a "large" life insurance policy and Mr. Parineh had several properties in foreclosure, no liquidity and "enormous debt," prosecutors said.

The allegedly planned nature of the killing makes Mr. Parineh subject to the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole if he is convicted, according to the state penal code.
