Peterson pleads not guilty to murder for hire charges

Posted by wlpo on March 3, 2015

Not guilty was the plea entered by Drew Peterson in the latest criminal allegations against him. Peterson was in Randolph County Court Tuesday morning for solicitation of murder for hire and solicitation of murder.

Peterson is accused of trying to hire someone to kill the man who sent him to prison for murder, Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. Prosecutors say Peterson was planning Glasgow’s demise while serving time in the Menard Correctional Center.

Peterson waived his right to a preliminary hearing and entered the plea before Randolph County Circuit Judge Richard A. Brown.

The state today filed a required notice disclosing the case involved the use of a court-ordered eavesdropping device on two occasions in 2014.
