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.
