The trial of Drew Peterson, a disgraced former Bolingbrook cop charged with murdering his third wife, Savio, starts with jury selection Monday. Peterson allegedly drowned Savio in her bathtub in March 2004 and staged the scene to make her death appear accidental.
If that's what happened, he managed to fool the Illinois State Police, who ruled Savio's death a freak bathtub accident until Peterson’s next wife, Stacy Peterson, mysteriously vanished in October 2007.
Stacy is still missing and the police believe Peterson may have had a hand in killing her, but they have yet to charge him with any wrongdoing in connection with her disappearance.
But damaging statements some claim she made about Peterson's involvement with Savio's death may be heard at the murder trial. Predictions Savio supposedly made about Peterson someday killing her are also expected to be introduced as evidence.
And Patch will have all of this, from the very beginning of jury selection until Peterson discovers his fate when the verdict is read.
