Drew Peterson enters prison for murder sentence
Question of the Day
JOLIET, Ill. — Less than 24 hours after screaming out his innocence in court, Drew Peterson has been transferred to an Illinois prison to begin serving a 38-year sentence for murder.
The Will County Sheriff's Office confirms the former suburban Chicago police officer was handed over Friday for transfer to the Stateville prison outside Joliet.
A judge sentenced him Thursday for the 2004 drowning death of his fourth wife, Kathleen Savio. He's a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
While addressing the judge before learning his sentence, Peterson exploded in anger. He looked at Savio's family and shouted, "I did not kill Kathleen!"
Corrections officials say Peterson could be moved to another prison after an evaluation period. He'll get four years credit for time already served in jail.
