Drew Peterson Trial Almost Over?

Posted by wlpo on August 24, 2012

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) – Prosecutors are expected to rest their case at Drew Peterson’s murder trial.

Today will be the end of their fourth week presenting evidence against the 58-year-old Peterson. They’ve called around 30 witnesses and are expected to call no more than one or two Friday before resting.

Peterson’s attorneys will have a chance to mount a defense. But they could decide to rest without calling any witnesses, then argue prosecutors didn’t meet their burden of proof.

Prosecutors have faced multiple challenges. That’s included a lack of physical evidence and a reliance on hearsay as they built their circumstantial case.

Peterson has pleaded not guilty to killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
