Peters is one of two men involved in the death of Kanisha Wood, 20. Wood died when a meth lab exploded in a cabin in the Town of Baldwin last May.
Peters was sentenced to seven and a half to 15 years in prison for manslaughter, along with four years for unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine. Those sentences will be served concurrently.
