Judge: Pastor may testify on Stacy Peterson's statements
The judge in Drew Peterson's pre-trial hearings issued three rulings on "hearsay" evidence.

Peterson is charged with murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He's also the prime suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

The pretrial hearing lasted about 30 minutes at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet.

The judge ruled on the following:

1. He did not decide on whether to accept marital priviledge testimony. 

The issue here is whether to accept hearsay testimony from Reverend Neil Schori. Schori says Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy, told him she saw Drew return home late at night wearing black, and carrying a bag full of women's clothing shortly before Savio was found dead.

2. He will compel Kathleen Savio's divorce attorney to answer questions

3. He will not allow videos that Peterson was in, such as network TV interviews. He said the videos are extremely prejudicial.

"“We’re very pleased with the judge’s ruling today with regards to the application of the husband and wife priviledge…,” said Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow.

Three new motions were filed on Friday, and they'll be addressed at a hearing on July 3rd.

Jury selection for the trial is set for July 23rd.
