Drew Peterson has formally appealed his conviction for murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Peterson is serving 38-years.

In a letter mailed to a state appeals court Monday, Peterson’s lawyers argue, the trial judge unfairly admitted hearsay evidence from wife Stacy’s pastor and divorce lawyer.

As a consequence, the appeal argues, Peterson didn’t get a fair trial.

The lawyers also say, Peterson was convicted with no physical evidence, and he got bad legal counsel.
