drfew Joliet, July 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Drew Peterson most probably killed his third and fourth wife, according to an alleged leak of sealed ruling by Judge Stephen White.

Drew who is charged with killing his third wife - Kethleen Savio, has pleaded not guilty to the charge of first-degree murder. Though Drew’s fourth wife - Stacy Peterson has disappeared since October 2007, Drew has not been charged with her disappearance and he maintains that he knows nothing about her disappearance.

The trial of Drew has been delayed after prosecutors appealed to use a hearsay witness account in the case.

Analysts believe that prosecutors’ determination to get the court to allow them use a hearsay account means that the prosecutors might be in trouble without those witnesses.

One particular case the prosecutors want to use against Drew is the account that is being made by Stacy Peterson’s pastor. According to Stacy’s pastor, Stacy confided in him that Drew came home with a bag containing lady’s clothes just when Savio’s body was found by the police.

The profile of the case has been enhanced by a new Illinois law called the “Drew’s Law”. Under the new law, prosecutors will be allowed to use hearsay if prosecutors prove that a key witness has been killed to prevent him/her to testify.
