Peter Dabish Sentenced to Life for Torture and Murder of Recent UM Grad Diana DeMayo
Twenty-three-year-old Diana Demayo had just graduated from the University of Miami with honors and had a bright future in front of her when she returned to her native Detroit and got involved with 24-year-old Peter Dabish. The privileged son of a cofounder of the national chain Powerhouse Gym, Dabish was convicted of torturing and murdering Demayo. He was sentence to life in prison with no chance of parole.
"I held my head against my daughter's chest to hear her last breath. I had been there for her first when she was in my womb," Linda Demayo testified.
"Let me say this to you, Mr. Dabish. Your life path has been one that has been overindulged and unchecked," Wayne County Circuit Judge Linda Parker said during the sentencing.
Dabish will spend the rest of his life behind bars with no chance of parole.
