2010_06_02_Dpete.jpg While Blago's last-ditch attempt to delay his trial was turned down today, another high-profile trial has gotten pushed back. Circuit Judge Stephen White has pushed back Drew Peterson's murder trial from a scheduled June 14 start date to July 8 when jury selection will begin. Peterson's attorney had submitted a proposed new date of August 23 but White didn't want such a substantial delay. Peterson is charged with the murder of third wife Kathleen Savio who died under mysterious circumstances in 2004.
