Drew Peterson will be in an Illinois courtroom Friday for a hearing for his upcoming murder trial, court officials said.
The former police sergeant is accused of killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004. He remains under investigation in the October 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
This hearing comes after a controversial ruling was made earlier this year in the widely followed murder case.
In April, an Illinois appellate court ruled that prosecutors can use potentially incriminating statements made by Savio and Peterson's still-missing wife against him.
That ruling overturned an earlier judge's decision that forbid prosecutors from using eight statements made by Savio before her death and by Stacy Peterson before her disappearance.FULL STORY
