Peterson Trial Recesses, Prosecution to Continue
JOLIET, IL - Proceedings have ended for another week in the Drew Peterson murder trial and prosecutors have not rested their case as expected.
The judge told attorneys Friday that he expects Will County prosecutors to rest on Monday. He also told the former police officer's defense team to be prepared to begin calling their own witnesses on Monday. Peterson is charged with the 2004 death of his third wife Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a dry bathtub. He has pleaded not guilty.
Peterson was charged in Savio's death in 2007 after his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, went missing. He is a suspect in her disappearance but has denied any wrongdoing.
