June 14 trial date set for Drew Peterson in Savio death

Jury selection to start then in ex-Bolingbrook cop's murder case

Staff Reporter
Drew Peterson will stand trial beginning June 14 for murder in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, a Will County judge ordered today.
Judge Stephen White ordered jury selection to begin that day for the 56-year-old former Bolingbrook cop, who's charged with drowning Savio in her bathtub during their bitter divorce.
Peterson, who remains jailed, has denied any involvement in her death — which initially was ruled accidental — or in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, who remains missing...

Still to be decided: whether the judge will allow the jury to hear that hearsay evidence — statements that other witnesses say were made by Savio and Stacy Peterson.
