    January 4, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The public may not learn details about the so-called hearsay evidence against Drew Peterson.
    On Monday Peterson's attorney filed a motion to close an upcoming hearing.

    the motion was denied


    Peterson's attorneys took the rare step of asking a judge to seal the courtroom for a Jan. 19 hearing required under a new state law on hearsay evidence.

    Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow and an attorney representing the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune and the Associated Press argued this morning that the hearing -- which could last more than two weeks and feature testimony from 60 people -- should be open to the public.

    "In the United States of America, we don't do that," Glasgow said of barring the public from court proceedings. "We do it out in the open."

    I bet DP has aged considerably while incarcerated.

    I am anxious for the hearing on the 19th. I think we'll hear about the "meat" of the prosecution's case.

    According to Joe Hosey (local reporter), Drew has aged alot. (said this on, IIRC, last weekends Geraldo show.)

    Also, not sure if this has been posted, but Stacy's Grandpa Bob, Bob Toutges, passed away recently. He seemed like such a sweet old soul...at least he is with Stacy now. :(

    I'm sorry to hear that Stacy's grandpa died......he did seem like a sweet grandpa. I'm sure it's been difficult for Cass, losing first her older sister, Tina, then Stacy, and now her grandpa, all in the space of a few years. :(

    I don't know of any television coverage of the hearing on Tuesday, January 19th. Probably the best place to follow the hearing will be on the site linked below.


    The Drew Peterson case: 2 wives to have major roles in pretrial hearing into drowning
    By Steve Schmadeke
    Tribune reporter January 17, 2010


    Former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson is charged with drowning estranged wife Kathleen Savio, but much of the information likely to be presented at a unique pretrial hearing that starts Tuesday will involve the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.


    For Stacy’s family, the hearing will provide their first detailed look at what was uncovered during the massive investigation launched after she vanished in 2007. Her disappearance and the exhumation afterward of Savio’s body and reclassification of her death as a homicide helped turn the case into national tabloid fodder.

    Leila is right that the above link is the site where we will hear the latest about the hearsay hearing. All articles will be posted there and alot of commentary. Geesh, I wish we could see this as it happens! Been looking forward to this for a long time.

    I watched WGN news this morning, and they said DP had red blotches on his face....nervous hives, maybe? Jail not so great now, huh Drew? *blows raspberries* :furious:
