Stacy Peterson Latest Focus Of Drew Peterson Murder Trial

Posted by wlpo on August 28, 2012

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) – Drew Peterson’s attorneys are hoping to dent the credibility of his vanished fourth wife heading into their second day as they seek to show he didn’t murder his third wife.

The judge is expected to decide if the defense can ask a witness if Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, sought to squeeze her husband for money by threatening to tell police he killed his third wife. Prosecutors had entered hearsay evidence that Stacy Peterson blamed her husband in Savio’s death.

Stacy Peterson is presumed dead. Drew Peterson is a suspect in her disappearance but isn’t charged in her case.
