Frey is now married to 37-year-old Hernandez.
The two met when Frey, her 2-year-old son, and 5-year-old daughter moved into Hernandez's neighborhood.
"We were introduced through another neighbor out front, children playing outside," Hernandez said.
"It was very casual and other than that we were friends but basically neighbors. It was quite a while before we actually began to be any more than just as a neighbor, you know," he said.
The Peterson case is something Frey would like to leave in the past, though there were lessons she took away from that time in her life.
"When you're caught up in the storm or, you know, just the turmoil of everything that there is another side and you do get through it. And you know, just standing by the truth and doing the right thing," she said.
Though it is clear Frey still thinks of Laci.
"It could have been me," she said. "And just the hope and prayers that, you know, if, if the shoes were switched, that you know, Laci would do the same thing for me."
