Peterson Jurors Wear Color-Coordinated Outfits


JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- There's apparently a daily color-coordination memo circulating the jury room at Drew Peterson's murder trial.

Jurors hearing the case outside Chicago have entered court each day for at least a week wearing the same colored clothing.

Tuesday, virtually all wore some shade of green. Before starting a three-day break Friday, they wore black. On Thursday, it was blue and Wednesday it was red.

The unusual display has left courthouse observers scratching their heads. But there's no way to tell what the jurors are thinking. They're barred from communicating with reporters or other trial participants.

Defense attorney Joel Brodsky says he noticed the color coordination but it doesn't bother him. Peterson has pleaded not guilty in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
