Jurors Send Judge Notes at Peterson Murder Trial

Posted:

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Jurors at Drew Peterson's murder trial have sent three notes to the judge asking for transcripts and other exhibits.

The jurors sent the notes Wednesday less than 2 hours after they began deliberating on whether the former Illinois police officer killed his third wife.

Peterson has pleaded not guilty to murdering Kathleen Savio in 2004. He was only charged after his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007.

The jurors asked for Drew and Stacy Peterson's phone records from around the day Savio's body was found.

They also asked for a letter Savio wrote saying she feared her husband could kill her, and transcripts of two witnesses who presented hearsay evidence that implicated Drew Peterson in her death.

The judge and attorneys are discussing how to respond.
