This won’t immediately affect Drew Peterson’s trial for allegedly murdering 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio, but Jeff Ruby has offered a major reward for help finding Stacy Peterson’s body; his 4th wife whose disappearance sparked the reopening of the investigation into Savio’s death. A few days ago, Ruby made news for being barred from the courtroom for making faces at Drew Peterson during the trial. He’s adding to the circus atmosphere, while simultaneously complaining about the lawyers antics.
In other news, the prosecution rested, and the defense has begun their case. Several witnesses have been called to cast doubt on the State’s witnesses. Again, the Tribune has running updates.
And finally, the jury has been coordinating their clothes for the duration of the trial, possibly taking their lead off a couple of defense attorneys (a husband and wife). It culminated in all of them wearing sports jerseys today (I see an Urlacher in the back row). Quirky and fun, and I’m sure a tension breaker for the long, hard work of sitting on this many-weeks trial.
Thanks to @kendallherold for the heads up on the Jeff Ruby story.
