(WGN-AM)- Drew Peterson's attorney today filed a motion for change of venue for his client.

Joel Brodsky earlier had signaled his intention of doing that, citing widespread publicity that would make it difficult for the former Bolingbrook police sergeant to get a fair trial. Peterson has been indicted in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, and is a suspect in the disappearnce of his fourth, Stacy Peterson. He denies any involvement in either case.

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for Aug. 14.

As of now, the trial would be held in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet.
