More than three years after he was arrested for the murder of his third wife, Drew Peterson is set to finally go on trial the end of July.
The newly appointed judge in Peterson's case set the week of July 23 for jury selection, with the trial beginning July 30.
Judge Edward Burmila asked Peterson if the date was OK.
"Yes, your honor," he replied. "I've been in solitary confinement for three years, your honor."
Peterson, 58, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant, is charged with killing his third wife Kathleen Savio. He is also the prime suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy Peterson.
Last Thursday, a new judge was assigned to Peterson's case.
