CHESTER, Ill. -- “I did not kill Kathleen!” Drew Peterson yells in one of many recordings from his trial and sentencing released Tuesday by Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker.

Peterson’s outburst took place before he was sentenced to 38 years in prison for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in February 2013.

Last month, Peterson was found guilty of trying to hire a hitman to kill Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, who convicted him in the Savio case.

Peterson was recorded talking with an inmate about setting that up. Those audio recordings were released Tuesday afternoon as well. Here are a few (some of them contain adult language).
