Judge Stephen White, who is overseeing the Drew Peterson case, ruled that the Peterson likely did murder his third and fourth wives, according to a new report.
The Chicago Tribune said it obtained a copy of a sealed ruling on hearsay testimony by the judge. It was made under a lesser standard than the reasonable doubt standard a jury would use.
White also ruled that prosecutors can use five of the 13 hearsay sources they'd hoped to. Peterson’s trial for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio is on hold while prosecutors appeal the ruling.
Peterson is suspected in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.
