Convicted murderer Drew Peterson wants the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider his murder conviction for the death of his third wife.

The former Bolingbrook cop filed a petition Monday, hoping the court will hear his case.

Peterson is serving a 38-year prison sentence for the murder of Kathleen Savio.

Illinois’ Supreme Court upheld his conviction just nine months ago.

The court ruled that testimony from a divorce attorney who spoke to Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, before she disappeared, did not violate attorney-client privilege, because he did not represent her.
