- Now that he has been sentenced to 38 years for the murder of Kathleen Savio? Listen to what Drew said in an interview I had with him.
Judge Edward Burmila Rejected all of the Motions for a New Trial and Sentenced Drew Peterson 38 years in Prison for Killing His Third Wife Kathleen Savio
BIRDY DREW PETERSON …
Will County Judge Edward Burmila denied all of the motions for a new trial and sentenced Drew Peterson to 38 years in prison for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio. Let me just add, it could not have happened to a more deserving individual. Who’s laughing now Drew? Following Peterson’s sentencing, he shouted that he did not kill his wife. An individual in the courtroom yelled in reply, “Yes you did!” FINALLY … THERE IS JUSTICE FOR KATHLEEN SAVIO.

Former Illinois cop Drew Peterson yelled, “I did not kill Kathleen!” during the sentencing phase of his trial today — and then a judge sentenced him to 38 years in jail for killing her.
The sentence came after Will County Judge Edward Burmila denied Peterson a re-trial in the killing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004.
Peterson had faced as many as 60 years in prison.
At his sentencing, after Peterson shouted that he did not kill his wife, someone in the courtroom yelled in reply, “Yes you did!” according to ABC News Chicago station WLS. Burmila then ordered that person to leave the courtroom.
Peterson went on to claim that police “altered evidence” in his case and “intimidated witnesses and scared my children.”
The long and bizarre, sad tale has finally come to an end. Well at least for one of Drew Peterson’s dead wives. In 2004, Peterson’s third wife, Savio, was found dead in her bathtub. Her death that was initially ruled an accidental drowning, but when his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007, Savio’s body was exhumed and her death ruled a homicide. For Drew Peterson who was laughing and making mock of his arrest and taking nothing serious, I would dare say he is not laughing now.

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.
