While Drew Peterson remains jailed on charges of killing third wife Kathleen Savio, WGN AM has gone forward with a mock trial and will air the mock closing arguments this Sunday beginning at 11 a.m. According to WGN:

"The People v. Drew Peterson" features Greg Adamski as moderator, Karen Conti as prosecutor, and lawyer Joseph R. Lopez as Drew Peterson's defense attorney. The broadcast will include the deliberations of the twelve jurors which were selected from the audience by a professional jury consultant and the verdict will be read at the conclusion of the broadcast. This event was intended as an educational exposition, based solely on the facts that have been publicly reported.

Don't feel like waiting til Sunday to hear it? There's already video of the performance available.
