Geeze, I'm surprised that Brodsky didn't suggest in his opening to say that "mad woman" Kathleen deserved to have an accident that killed her !!
Update: Mistrial Nearly Declared in Peterson Murder Trial
Updated 11 a.m.
It looked like there was nearly a mistrial after Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow brought up the co-worker Drew Peterson allegedly offered $25,000 to orchestrate a hit on his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Glasgow failed to disclose to the defense he was going to use that evidence. This was a big part of the prosecution's case and they now can't use it at trial. Peterson's defense team moved for a mistrial.
There was a long argument, but the judge denied the motion. Prosecutors will still be hampered going forward.
So it will come down to dueling autopsy experts since all other avenues have been cut off by the judge.
Why would they have to portray her as a 'madwoman' if she just accidentally drowned in her bathtub?
Apparently Brodsky was READING notes during his opening, literally reading them lol.
Objections were flying from the Pros especially when Brodsky was trying to tell the Jurors DP's entire life story. HA
Needless to say it didn't flow very well,
According to JC the jurors are on to Brodsky's games.
His 3 mouthy lawyers out trashing KS at lunch break. She was mean, bossy, had to have her way, etc. GMAB.
Gee, no wonder Drew killed her (sarcasm)
Don't they realize how ridiculous they sound?
This trial is going to really get my blood pressure up, I can tell.
