Peterson attorneys to file 'hearsay' motion
August 7, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Drew Peterson's attorneys will file a motion on Monday asking a judge find the so called 'hearsay' law unconstitutional.
Peterson is accused of killing his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Prosecutors plan on using statements that she reportedly made to family members in Peterson's trial. Savio reportedly told her family that Peterson would try to kill her.
A new state law passed last year makes it easier to use hearsay statements from victims who were allegedly killed to prevent them from testifying against their attackers.
