Nancy Grace grills Drew Peterson’s attorney

Drew Peterson prosecutor James Glasgow gets to keep his job as Will County, Illinois’ State’s Attorney. He was elected to his fifth term on Tuesday, beating out his Republican opponent, Dave Carlson.

During Glasgow’s fourth term as State’s Attorney, two highly publicized cases were tried in his district resulting in guilty verdicts; Illinois v. Drew Peterson and Illinois v. Christopher Vaughn.

Vaughn was convicted of killing his wife and three children in his family’s car. He wanted to start a new life of isolation in the Canadian wilderness.

Glasgow was the lead prosecutor in former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson’s trial. Peterson was charged with killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Savio was found dead in her dry bathtub in March 2004, and her death was ruled an accidental drowning. After Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy, went missing in 2007, investigators re-opened their investigation into Savio’s death and ruled it a homicide. On September 6, 2012, a jury found Peterson guilty of Savio’s murder.
