Peterson jury selection heads into 2nd day
JOLIET, Ill. — A judge and attorneys are moving swiftly toward seating a jury in Drew Peterson's murder trial by removing pool members who saw a TV movie about the case or came to court already convinced he's guilty.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys say they expect a full jury to be in place by the end of Tuesday — the second day of jury selection. Eight were selected Monday, meaning just eight more are needed to impanel 12 jurors and four alternates.
The 58-year-old former suburban Chicago police officer is charged with killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004. Her death was ruled accidental until police began investigating the 2007 disappearance his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
