Peterson case returns with hearing for new trial

CHICAGO (AP) — A spat between Drew Peterson’s former lead trial attorney and current lawyers will appear in court.

A judge will hear arguments today that Peterson deserves a new trial on grounds that former lead trial attorney Joel Brodsky botched last year’s trial. Brodsky left the defense team in November and denies the allegations.

In September, jurors convicted Peterson — a former suburban Chicago police officer — of murdering his third wife. He also is a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

A Chicago-area defense attorney says it is unlikely Peterson will get a new trial.

If the motion is rejected, the judge could proceed straight to sentencing. Peterson faces a maximum 60-year prison term.
