Drew Peterson In Court Today

Posted by wlpo on May 4, 2012

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) – Drew Peterson is due to return to court for the first time in nearly two years.

A status hearing is scheduled for today in Will County in the former Bolingbrook police officer’s murder case. He is accused of killing his third wife. It’s the first step toward a trial that is expected to begin this summer. His trial was postponed as attorneys battled over what evidence could be admitted.

Peterson was set to stand trial in the summer of 2010. But prosecutors appealed a judge’s decision to forbid them from
presenting certain hearsay evidence. Last month, the appellate court in Ottawa ruled the evidence could be presented.
