Lawyers are in court again this morning to hear a decision on the motion requesting a delay in the start of Drew Peterson’s murder trial. Judge Stephen White has agreed to postpone the start of the trial with Jury selection beginning on July 8. Peterson’s attorneys argued unsuccessfully for a date in August.
Next court date for pre-trial motions will be June 18.
