In a day that focused mostly on the original investigation into Kathleen Savio’s death, the Drew Peterson trial heated up Wednesday afternoon in a testy exchange over a potential key ruling on hearsay testimony.
After an Illinois State Police investigator left the witness stand, prosecutors prepared to call Kristin Anderson to testify.
Anderson, a friend of Savio, testified in 2010 that Savio told her she started sleeping with a kitchen knife tucked under her mattress in 2003 so she could defend herself if attacked by Peterson.
“It was protection,” Anderson testified in 2010. “She indicated to me if Drew was going to come after her, she was going to fight -- she was going to be prepared to fight.”
But before her testimony could begin, the two sides argued over whether her statements should be allowed. Peterson defense attorney Steven Greenberg said a previous judge handling the Peterson case, Stephen White, had found them unreliable.
Burmila cited that ruling, causing prosecutors to protest, somewhat loudly, that an appellate court decision should overrule it.
