Chicago Tribune: Peterson arrested on murder warrant
Former Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson was arrested this afternoon in connection with the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, according to authorities.
On March 1, 2004, Savio, 40, was discovered by neighbors in her Bolingbrook home in an empty bathtub with a 1-inch gash on the back of her scalp.
Savio and Peterson were divorced but the details of the divorce settlement were weeks away from being finalized when she died.
An autopsy at the time determined she drowned, and a coroner's jury ruled months later--based largely off the testimony of state police--that the death was accidental.
Authorities reopened Savio's case after Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, disappeared in October 2007.
