Drew Peterson trial closing arguments start Tuesday
September 3, 2012 (WLS) -- After more than one month of testimony, closing arguments in the Drew Peterson murder trial begin Tuesday.
There is no physical evidence connecting the former Bolingbrook police sergeant to the death of third wife Kathleen Savio.
Closing arguments will be the attorneys' last chance to sway jurors.
"If the state can't prove it's a homicide, without a reasonable doubt, it doesn't matter what people said. It doesn't matter what Rev. Schori said, it doesn't matter what the sister said, it doesn't matter what anybody says, because if they can't prove it's a homicide, it has to be a not guilty," said Joe Lopez, who will speak for the defense.
Savio was found in a dry bathtub in 2004. Her death was originally ruled accidental, but investigators reopened the case after Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, disappeared in 2007.
Peterson denies any wrongdoing.
