New trial for Peterson? Tuesday hearing will decide

Drew Peterson’s fight for a new trial could be decided at a hearing Tuesday.

Peterson was convicted last year of murdering his ex-wife Kathleen Savio.

His new defense team says he should get a new trial, because former Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky botched the case.

The lawyers say Brodsky called a witness who jurors later said convinced them to reach a guilty verdict.

Brodsky, prosecutor James Glasgow and Peterson himself, could testify at tomorrow’s hearing.

Peterson could get sentenced to prison if the judge denies him a new trial.

    Who cares, let Drew stay in prison and become someones lover. Can't stand this guy. FYI I have never posted a comment that I like this wife killer, someone else hacked in and said that. Although I don't like our president doesn't mean that I like peterson either. Hate the guy, well hate is pretty strong but can't stand the site of him.
