Wrongful death lawsuit

Drew Peterson (center) and his attorneys approach the courthouse an Ottawa, Ill. for a hearing where lawyers discussed the estate of Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio. Lawyers representing the Savio estate are now free to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Peterson after his attorneys withdrew a motion that sought to block them.
