JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Drew Peterson's attorney is trying to get the former police sergeant's murder trial moved out of the county where he's charged because of what he calls extensive and inflammatory media coverage.
Thursday's motion by Joel Brodsky was expected. He's long expressed concern that Peterson might not be able to get a fair trail in Will County, where he's charged in the 2004 drowning death of Kathleen Savio.
Since Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007 the case has been the subject of scores of news reports -- many of which have included appearances by Brodsky and Peterson.
Peterson is a suspect in Stacy Peterson's disappearance, but hasn't been charged.
The motion is scheduled to be heard in Will County on Aug. 14.
