5:50 p.m. Testimony done for the day

Nicholas Pontarelli's testimony has concluded and court is done for the day. Testimony is scheduled to resume Thursday morning. 

5:15 p.m. 'I was in shock'

Kathleen Savio’s next-door neighbor Nicholas Pontarelli wasn’t allowed to testify that he didn’t see any scratches or scrapes on her arms the afternoon before prosecutors believe she drowned in her bathtub.

Pontarelli is testifying about what happened the weekend Savio, who he called a "second mother," was found dead in 2004.

He said on Monday night, he and other family members entered Savio’s home after Drew Peterson called a locksmith to the house.

Pontarelli saw an open carton of orange juice with the cap off on the kitchen island, which he closed and put it in the refrigerator.

"She was the type of person who would put it away and would be on the kids about putting stuff away," he said.

He entered the bathroom where Savio died after his mother screamed and saw her body but didn’t touch anything on the tub, Pontarelli testified.

"I just kind of stood back; I leaned back against her bed," he said.

Then he left the house. "I was in shock." 

The next day, Pontarelli said he saw Peterson, Peterson's wife, Stacy, and Peterson's son Stephen enter the home and remove items. Peterson owned the home with Savio. 

4:50 p.m. 'The issue has been resolved'

Judge Edward Burmila has returned to the bench.

"The issue has been resolved, and the juror will remain seated," he said.

Nicholas Pontarelli's testimony has resumed.

4:40 p.m. Juror knows witness on the stand

Judge Edward Burmila stopped the proceedings and ordered attorneys and a juror to meet him in his chambers after one of the jurors said he knows the witness now on the stand, Kathleen Savio's next-door neighbor Nicholas Pontarelli.
