4 p.m. Peterson mistress takes witness stand

Susan McCauley, who worked at a bar owned by Drew Peterson, testified about seeing Peterson at a Bolingbrook fundraiser after Kathleen Savio died.

McCauley said she gave Peterson a hug and asked how his boys were.

"Oh they’ll be fine, she was crazy," Peterson said of his ex-wife, according to McCauley.

"He said she was on antidepressants…and that she was drinking wine, that there was a wine glass found by the bathtub."

"I said to him, basically, ‘You must have a lucky horseshoe placed somewhere,’" she said. "Now you don’t have to pay child support — you get the house.

"He laughed it off and made a couple jokes."

McCauley is Peterson’s former mistress — a detail that jurors were not allowed to hear.

2:55 p.m. Savio's sister signed book, movie deal

Kathleen Savio’s sister Susan Doman testified that she signed a book and movie deal that guaranteed her $30,000 if a film was made, specified that she be portrayed in a "positive" light and allowed the story to be "fictionalized" to make it more colorful.

Defense attorney Joseph Lopez asked if she now has a financial motive in seeing Drew Peterson convicted so her the book will be released.

"No," Doman replied. "This book is about domestic violence."

"This book is about you being paid," Lopez replied.

"No," Doman said.
