Closing Arguments Set for Peterson Trial
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Closing arguments are set to get under way at Drew Peterson's trial.
They come Tuesday in the sixth week of a trial to determine if the former Illinois police officer murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio. She was found dead in her bathtub in 2004.
Defense attorney Joe Lopez, nicknamed "the shark" for his aggressive style, will emphasize the absence of any physical evidence.
Prosecutors will say circumstantial evidence points to one man: Peterson.
Chris Koch gives prosecutors' closing. Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow gets the final word in a rebuttal.
This is the biggest trial in Glasgow's career. And the normally stone-faced prosecutor has shown flashes of anger during the trial.
Peterson was charged after his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007. He denies any wrongdoing.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
