Peterson Tells Ottawa Court He’s Ready For Trial

Posted by wlpo on April 25, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Drew Peterson is ready to go to trial.

Joel Brodsky, Drew Peterson’s attorney, says the defense has  told the Third District Appellate Court in Ottawa they won’t fight  a recent higher court ruling allowing prosecutors to use previously  excluded hearsay statements.  Legal wrangling over the statements from Peterson’s drowned ex-wife Kathleen Savio and missing fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, has postponed Peterson’s trial for nearly two years

The jailed Peterson was charged with killing Savio in 2004 after his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007.
