Peterson's lawyers withdraw mistrial motion
JOLIET — Lawyers for Drew Peterson have withdrawn a motion for a mistrial, allowing the former Illinois police officer's murder trial to go ahead.
The defense attorneys' move Wednesday follows several blunders by prosecutors seeking to prove that the 58-year-old Peterson killed his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004. He's also a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, but never has been charged in her case.
Peterson told the judge Wednesday he does not want a mistrial.
