Dozens More Witnesses Set to Testify at Drew Hearing
Defense will call 20 witnesses later this week
The parade of witnesses who have been telling a Joliet judge about Drew Peterson’s murderous intentions keeps on coming.
Attorneys say more than two dozen witnesses are yet to be called in the hearing to determine what hearsay evidence will be allowed when Drew Peterson stands trial in the 2004 slaying of his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Add that to the nearly 60 witnesses who have been called already and the Joliet court is in store for a gore overload.
A spokesman for the Will County States attorney said the tales should be done by Wednesday.
The Drama of Drew
Defense attorneys say they expect to call 20 witnesses of their own, meaning the hearing is expected to go into next week.
