Judge to order divorce attorney to testify in Drew Peterson murder trial
Drew Peterson’s judge on Thursday said he will order the divorce attorney for Peterson’s late third wife to testify about a conversation Kathleen Savio allegedly had with a prosecutor before she died when Peterson stands trial for murder next month.
Judge Edward Burmila met privately last week with attorney Harry Smith to discuss conversations Smith had with Savio before she died and to determine which of those conversations should be allowed as evidence at Peterson’s trial.
Smith had claimed he shouldn’t have to testify about Savio’s conversation with the prosecutor, though Burmila ruled Thursday he will make him. Exactly what was said between Savio and the prosecutor was not disclosed, but Burmila said the conversation was incriminating.
