Drew Peterson Indicted in Third Wife’s Death

By Associated Press/ Friday, May 8, 2009

PetersonBolingbrook, Ill  —  Authorities say former Illinois police sergeant, Drew Peterson, has been indicted on a murder charge in the death of his third wife.

The Will County state’s attorney’s office says the indictment was issued Thursday in the death of Kathleen Savio. It did not immediately give details but scheduled a news conference for later Thursday.

Mr. Peterson is also a suspect in the October 2007 disappearance of his young wife, Stacy. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Bolingbrook police say Illinois State Police arrested Mr. Peterson on Thursday. A state police spokesman did not immediately return phone messages from the Associated Press.

Mr. Peterson’s attorney, Joel Brodsky, says in an e-mail that he’s on his way to New York and referred messages to Mr. Peterson’s publicist, Glenn Selig. Mr. Selig says he couldn’t confirm Peterson’s arrest.

Meanwhile HBO says there’s no chance Mr. Peterson will appear on “Cathouse,” its reality show set in a Nevada brothel.

In fact, HBO spokeswoman Tobe Becker says the network would cancel the show before allowing the former suburban Chicago police officer to appear.

Mr. Selig said Wednesday that his client was weighing an offer from the owner of the Moonlight Bunny Ranch outside Carson City.

Mr. Becker calls that a “stunt” that HBO does not condone.

Mr. Selig did not immediately comment Thursday. However, a spokeswoman for the Bunny Ranch says they’re still talking to Mr. Peterson.
