Drew Peterson will be sentenced over 2 days in February

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Drew Peterson, an ex-cop from Bolingbrook convicted of murdering his third wife, will be sentenced on Feb. 19 and 20 of this year.

The judge said he feels the court will need two days to hear all the witnesses.

A jury convicted Peterson of first-degree murder in September, in his ex-wife Kathleen Savio's death.

Peterson's attorneys want his murder conviction overturned and some could end up both making argments and testifying. They said his former lead attorney Joel Brodsky made "ethical violations" during his first trial.

If the motion is denied, he will proceed straight to sentencing Peterson.

Attorneys Steve Greenberg and Joseph Lopez were on the trial team with Brodsky and still represent Peterson. Burmila says the attorneys will be allowed to both make arguments and testify about claims of a substandard trial defense.
