CHESTER, Ill. -- Hours of audio recordings have been played in court this week in the Drew Peterson murder for hire case.   The majority of the recordings are difficult to hear and the jurors were provided transcripts.

Inmate Antonio Smith testified that after several recorded conversations in November of 2014, authorities provided him with a picture of James Glasgow with two others to show Peterson, in hopes of confirming they had the right guy.  Smith said he forwarded the photo to Peterson even though he himself thought it looked staged.

On November 29th, the two met in the yard and Smith says he felt Peterson was "suspicious" of him.

While the recordings don't include the words "kill" or "murder" prosecutors say the two men are discussing having Smith's uncle carry out the murder of Will County Prosecutor James Glasgow.

Prosecutors say they plan to play more of the tapes to ensure Peterson has no grounds for appeal if he is convicted.
