Was this still national news? I know it was when his 4th wife, Stacy Peterson went missing.
Anyway, Drew Peterson was found guilty of murdering his 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio. Her death was originally ruled accidental but the Stacy Peterson case cast new questions, Kathleen Savio was exhumed and charges eventually pressed. The big thing was that the prosecution never had any hard evidence -- it was all circumstantial and hear-say. That and the prosecution was continually doing stupid things like entering evidence or soliciting testimony that the judge had already ruled inadmissible. Certain to be appealed and we'll see where it goes from there.
