Drew Peterson's Trial *FIRST WEEK*

CHICAGO -- One relative of Drew Peterson's long-missing fourth wife calls him a dog who deserves to be chained. The boorish, motorcycle-loving ex-police officer on trial in the death of his third wife makes unsavory comments about his alleged victims' families, calling some money-grubbers. He points out one relative's criminal history.

Opening statements are slated for Tuesday in the long-delayed trial of Peterson, a 58-year-old former suburban Chicago police sergeant who was charged in 2009 with murdering his 40-year-old third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Drew Peterson saga moves to the courtroom Tuesday

Quote:
ight and a half years after his third wife was found dead in a bathtub, the murder trial of former Chicago-area police officer Drew Peterson is set to begin in earnest with opening statements Tuesday.
The 58-year-old Peterson is accused in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in a trial that has been postponed for two years. He also remains under investigation in the October 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
A jury of seven men and five women, chosen over two days last week, will weigh Drew Peterson's fate during a trial in Joliet, Illinois, that is expected to last about a month, according to his lawyer Joel Brodsky.

Who Testified Chart

I have a new web page chart I created for quick reference to previous testimony of some people who may be called as witnesses at the trial. I've included references to those who testified at the Grand Jury, the Hearsay Hearing Trial, and have columns open for adding references for the murder trial as well as the future Savio vs Peterson civil case.

When viewing the web page chart for a particular name, if you click on the *date* for the Hearsay Hearing Trial column, that link will automatically jump you to the exact location where there are notes and references to that individual's prior testimony.

Note: This is a work in progress so I will be updating the site as new information is available.

Hope this helps :-)

Thank you :-)

If anybody wishes to print the web page to use as a check off reference, choose the "Landscape" option when printing, and it should print out five pages.

Been waiting 5 long years for this day, as are many of you also!

Praying for justice for Kathleen!

Opening statements in the Drew Peterson trial are this morning. Cameras aren't allowed in the courtroom, but In Session has a crew at the courthouse to bring you all the news from the trial. Get caught up on the case here: http://www.hlntv.com/clusters/drew-peterson

Prosecutors in the Drew Peterson trial are expected to call Tom and Mary Pontarelli, Robert Akin, and Chris Wolzen as their first witnesses. Tom and Mary Pontrarelli are Peterson's neighbors who found Kathleen Savio's body in 2004. In Session will post some minor updates on the the trial in the thread below.

I hope it's ok to post tweets (??)


In Session Judge Burmilla has just taken the bench. "One housekeeping thing we need to do is there's one juror that was not sworn in. I took care of that this morning, so all the jurors are now sworn."

The judge says there is one motion that needs to be addressed this morning. Defense attorney Steve Greenberg says that one of his concerns is what can and can't be said during openings. "If either side starts saying things in their opening, and they aren't proven up later on, the jurors will hear that ... some of these things are of serious concern. If the State starts getting into the specifics of the hearsay statements, we have many objections to that ... all of Kathleen Savio's statements that 'Drew's going to kill me' are not admissible." He cites case law to back up his position.


In Session Greenberg continues to go over case law that he believes backs up his position regarding use of hearsay during the openings. "We're worried about that."

In Session Greenberg also mentions motive evidence. "When a person dies, and they're already divorced, the individual is considered as a living person under the statutes. For years, we've been hearing that Drew did this for financial reasons . . . But there's a divorce decree where a judge said this was a fair settlement. They have zero evidence to show . . . that if anything happened to her he was going to benefit. So I don't think they should be allowed to argue that he was in way benefitting from her death."

In Session Greenberg wraps up by arguing that the State should not be allowed to claim that "this was a staged crime scene... they shouldn't be able to get into this in their opening, because they have no evidence of it... they can't say Drew was at the house, because they have no evidence of it... how can they say these things in opening statement? Because they want to believe it's true."

In Session The prosecution responds by arguing that there is no pertinent law that limits what can be said during openings, and disputes the case law cited by the defense.

In Session Prosecutor Connor offers some case law to the Court. Greenberg complains, says the defense was not provided with this info prior to the hearing. The judge agrees, but lets Connor proceed, and says if the defense needs time later to look at this material, that can be arranged.

Attorneys have assembled. Peterson entered in chains, wearing a suit. The judge should take the bench momentarily.

Our local news had Brodsky looking all confident last night smoking a 6 inch long fat stoggie making the prediction that the trial will last about a month.

I have to head into Joliet, two blocks away from the courthouse this afternoon. My Mom said that the area is already crazy with media so I expect I will need to leave super early to make my appointment. If I get close enough I will try to get some pics.

I met Beth Karas in person and chatted with her for about 20 min or so during verdict watch for the Jason Young trial. Very sweet woman, and down-to-earth. I was excited since I had watched her during the Scott Peterson trial. We talked curly hair versus straight hair. I told her I really liked her curly hairstyles; she said the network insists on a sleeker/straighter style. I think the original CourtTV brass was much less "corporate" than the current configuration of execs.

Sounds like Brodsky is attacking Kathleen rather than discussing the lack of evidence, even saying that DP called Kathleen a "madwoman".

Talking heads are miffed by his opening.

Yeah I knew he would attack Kathleen.

Drew is a good person and wants to help people that is why he became a police officer.
