CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Drew Peterson could have to give up his pension.

Peterson's in prison for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, but he still gets $79,000 a year from the Bolingbrook Police Pension fund.

Now an investigator for the fund says Peterson's murder conviction is reason enough to hold a public hearing on revoking the pension.

State law says the pension board can revoke Peterson's pension if it finds he used his police powers in Savio's murder.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
