JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — A judge has made additional rulings on what evidence will be admissible at Drew Peterson's murder trial.
In a hearing days before jury selection begins, Will County Judge Edward Burmila Wednesday ruled prosecutors could display a three-dimensional model of the alleged murder victim, Kathleen Savio.
But he denied a prosecutors' motion to enter evidence Peterson wiretapped Savio's house. A prosecutor had described the planting of a recording device as proof of Peterson's plan to eventually kill his third wife.
Higher courts have ruled Burmila can consider admitting hearsay evidence at a trial where there will be little to no physical evidence.
But Burmila refused the prosecutors' request he make clear immediately which of more than a dozen hearsay statements will be permitted.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday.
