Hearings resumed today to determine which statements will be admissable in the trial of Drew Peterson for the murder of his ex-wife, Kathleen Savio. Cassandra Cales, sister of Stacy Peterson, took the stand this morning.
“She just looked at me with this blank face,” Cales testified. “She said she feared for her life and that if anything ever happened to her, Drew did something to her.”
Herald-News reporter, Joseph Hosey, tweeted that Jeffrey Pachter, of Braidwood, testified today and said Drew Peterson asked him to find someone from the Hill neighborhood on Joliet’s east side to kill Savio. He said, “He asked me because of the area that I worked (in) if I knew anyone who could have his ex-wife taken care of.”
Fox’s Craig Wall tweeted that Peterson “wanted to know when to set up alibi.” Kathleen was found dead in her bathtub March 1, 2004. Pachter says he called Drew in July of 2004 and Peterson told him, “The favor I asked you to do — I don’t need it anymore.”
