Hearings resume today to determine which statements will be admissable in the trial of Drew Peterson for the murder of his ex-wife, Kathleen Savio.
Nick Pontarelli, 19, took the stand this morning. At the time of Kathleen Savio’s death, he lived next door to the Savio home with his parents, Mary and Thomas Pontarelli. Nick was one of the people Drew Peterson sent into Kathleen’s home the night her body was discovered.
Pontarelli said that Kathleen Savio was like a second mom to him and that she confided in him about her fear that Drew would kill her. She showed him evidence of Drew breaking into the house and possibly recording her phone conversations.
Thomas Pontarelli, Nick’s father, testified about Drew’s demeanor once Kathleen’s body was discovered as well as the absence of towels and clothing from the bathroom. Pontarelli also stated that Drew left a .38 caliber bullet on his driveway as a warning and told him that any friend of Savio’s was an enemy of his.
