Kaling Wald lived with husband's corpse believing he would be resurrected
"We were trusting God … we thought, 'OK Lord, you know better,'" Wald told the Spectator.
Wald thought her husband went into a coma "sometime in March and eventually died, probably around March 20, 2013," Booy wrote.
Wald slept in the bed with her husband for one night, just before he died. Then she noticed his stomach was bloating and rigor mortis was setting in on his forehead, court documents show.
After he died, his wife sealed off the room so the smell of the body wouldn’t permeate through the rest of the house, where she was still living with her six children.
"Kaling and her five children who resided in the house are devout Christians and thought Peter would be resurrected and therefore kept the door locked and waited for him to come to life," Booy wrote. "There were also friends who resided at the house. They all prayed on a daily basis for Peter to come back to life."
