Drew Peterson’s saga continues as he was charged today of attempting to hire a hitman to kill prosecutor James Glasgow. Peterson had already been serving a sentence of 38-years for the 2004 murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Moreover, he was already under suspicion for the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Ann Cales. According to the Chicago Tribune, Peterson believes the Stacy is still alive.
The jury deliberated for an hour before convicting Peterson guilty of solicitation of murder for hire and solicitation of murder. The charges could land him in prison for an additional 60 years. The inmate, Antonio Smith worked with authorities and recorded his conversations with Peterson.
Smith told Peterson that he had arranged for his uncle to kill Glasgow by Christmas 2014. In response to this Peterson was ready to go saying, “OK, alright, I’m in.”
Whatever happens to Peterson, he can expect to stay in prison for a long, long time.
