JOLIET, Ill. – Drew Peterson shocked an Illinois courtroom during his sentencing hearing in the death of his third wife, shouting "I did not kill Kathleen."
Someone in the court audience responded by shouting back, "Yes, you did." That person was then removed from the Joliet courtroom on Thursday afternoon.
Peterson's outburst came as a judge was preparing to sentence him for murdering Kathleen Savio. The former Bolingbrook police officer faces between 20 and 60 years in prison.
