Drew Peterson has been found guilty of killing Kathleen Savio, his third wife, in 2004.

Jury members deliberated for 13 hours and 52 minutes before reaching a decision. Earlier today, they asked the judge for the definition of “unanimous,” a move that seemed to indicate they were not all in agreement about the verdict.

Savio’s cause of death was initially deemed an accidental slip in the bathtub, and the case wasn’t reopened until Peterson’s fourth wife disappeared in 2007. He is a person of interest in that disappearance case, though he hasn’t been charged with any crimes.
