Drew Peterson back in court on murder-for-hire charges

RANDOLPH COUNTY — The former suburban Chicago police officer convicted of killing his third wife is due back in court as he awaits trial on allegations he tried to hire someone to kill the prosecutor who helped put him in prison.
Drew Peterson has pleaded not guilty to a murder-for-hire plot to kill Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow. The ex-Bolingbrook police sergeant faces a July trial in southern Illinois, where he is serving a 38-year sentence after his 2012 conviction in Kathleen Savio’s death eight years earlier.
Randolph County State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker said Monday he expects Peterson to attend a Tuesday morning case management conference.
A judge has barred prosecutors and Peterson’s defense lawyer from publicly revealing evidence involving the use of eavesdropping devices in order to protect an unidentified informant.
