Peterson judge: Testimony done, closings next week
JOLIET – A judge sent jurors home after they heard the last testimony at Drew Peterson's murder trial on Thursday, saying they will return after Labor Day to hear closing arguments.
The state called just two witnesses, both forensic pathologists, in a one-day rebuttal as they entered the last evidence against the former suburban Chicago police officer.
Peterson has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 2004 death of his third wife, 40-year-old Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub. He faces a maximum 60-year prison term if convicted.
