2010 - July 1 - Kathleen Savio - Drew Peterson - Murder trial will begin on July 8, 2010.
Although Drew Peterson and his 6 legal eagles (attorneys) are hoping
to get any mention Stacey Peterson from coming into this trial, that's
not likely to happen. Stacey was a prime player in the divorce of
Kathleen from Drew Peterson.
HEARSAY THAT WILL BE ALLOWED
Stacey Peterson expressed her fears about her own safety to others.
Much of that isn't being allowed to come into the trial.
One important witness will be able to testify, the pastor , Neil Schori,
that Stacey confided in.
His testimony in the trial concerns Stacey Peterson telling him that
on the night of Kathleen Savio's death, Drew was missing for several
hours. When he came home, he was dressed entirely in black and
carrying another woman's clothing. He then coached her for hours
on what to say to investigators about where he'd been that night.
. Stacey Peterson had provided a false alibi for her husband Drew
at his insistence. Stacey later turned up "missing" and Drew is
a suspect in her disappearance.
The prosecution successfully argued that this type of evidence, which
normally would not be allowed in trial, should be, because the witness,
Stacey was killed to keep from testifying.
DELAY DELAY DELAYING TRIAL TACTICS
Peterson's team requested another trial delay but were unsuccessful.
AUTOPSY BY MICHAEL BADEN
Peterson's team is attempting to throw out Dr. Michael Baden's
testimony and the results of the autopsy he did on behalf of Kathleen's
family. They're using the fact that a Fox TV producer who was present
with Dr. Baden, filmed Dr. Baden, (not Kathleen's body) at the time of
autopsy, that the process and results had thus been tainted.
To be continued as events and the trial unfold.
