Judge in Peterson trial: Pastor may testify about statements Stacy Peterson made

A pastor can testify at Drew Peterson’s trial in the drowning of his third wife about statements Peterson’s fourth wife made about Peterson’s actions at the time of the death, the judge in the former Bolingbrook police sergeant’s case ruled today.

Peterson is scheduled to go on trial next month in the murder of Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub March 1, 2004, about five months after they had divorced.

Will County Judge Edward Burmila ruled this morning that the Rev. Neil Schori will be allowed to testify for the prosecution that Peterson’s now-missing fourth wife, Stacy, told the pastor she saw Peterson return home late, dressed in black and carrying a bag of women’s clothing shortly before Savio was found dead.
