Drew Peterson Found Guilty of Murder in the Death of Kathleen Savio


The verdict is in for the Drew Peterson murder trial … GUILTY!!!

Finally there is Justice fair Kathleen Savio. Drew Peterson, the 58 year old former Bolling Brook police officer has been found guilty of murder by a jury of his peers. Peterson now faces up to 60 years in prison. Following the verdict Savio’s brother-in-law, Mitch Dorman stated, “Finally, finally, finally. … We finally got that murdering bastard.” I bet Peterson is not laughing this evening.

Drew Peterson, the former Illinois police officer who gained notoriety after his much-younger wife vanished in 2007, was convicted Thursday of murdering a previous wife in a case centered on secondhand hearsay statements from both women.

Peterson, 58, sat stoically looking straight ahead and did not react as the judge announced jurors had found him guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Her relatives gasped, then hugged each other as they cried quietly.

Illinois has no death penalty, and Peterson now faces a maximum 60-year prison term when sentenced Nov. 26.

Drew Peterson’s sore loser defense attorney says, “thank you for hating us”. You’re welcome.
