Drew Peterson, convicted of one murder and suspect in another *GUILTY AGAIN!*

    The Illinois Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal in the case of Drew Peterson, the former police officer who was convicted in 2012 of murder in the death of his third wife.

    Lawyers for Peterson asked the high court to toss the murder conviction earlier this year, arguing he was denied a fair trial due to the use of so-called hearsay statements and other allegedly critical errors during court proceedings in Will County.

    An Illinois appellate court in November affirmed the former Bolingbrook police officer's murder conviction and sentence in the 2004 death of Kathleen Savio, whose body was found in her suburban Chicago home's bathtub. The court upheld Peterson's 38-year sentence, meaning he won't be paroled until 2047.

    Peterson is scheduled to stand trial on charges he solicited an inmate to kill Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, who prosecuted the Savio case.

    Drew Peterson set to return to court for murder-for-hire trial

    On Friday, jurors will again file into a courtroom, this time in the tiny Randolph County Courthouse in downstate Chester where Peterson is to stand trial on charges he attempted to find a hit man to kill Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow.

    Peterson, 62, was charged with solicitation for murder in February 2015 after a fellow inmate allegedly recorded him trying to arrange the hit from inside the maximum security Menard Correctional Center where he is serving a 38-year sentence for killing Kathleen Savio.

    Jury selection to begin in Peterson murder-for-hire trial

    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jury selection is set to begin in the murder-for-hire trial of Drew Peterson, the former suburban Chicago police officer accused of plotting to kill the prosecutor who put him behind bars in his third wife's death.

    The process will start Friday in Randolph County in southern Illinois, where Peterson, 62, is serving a 38-year-sentence at the maximum security Menard Correctional Center. Opening arguments are scheduled to start Monday, with the trial anticipated to last at least one week.

    The Illinois Attorney General's Office and the Randolph County state's attorney are prosecuting the case against Peterson, who faces a sentence of up to 60 years if convicted of solicitation of murder for hire along with solicitation of murder.
