Attorneys for both sides in the case of Drew Peterson have been stating their case to Judge Burmila as to why Peterson should or should not get a new trial.

Arguments have been going on for more than an hour,  with the defense basically rehashing and reminding the judge what took place during the trial.

Judge Burmila has said he is willing to hear arguments until 5:30 Wednesday. It is not clear if sentencing will happen today.

If Burmila denies Peterson a right to a new trial,  the the sentencing will follow shortly after.
