Retired judge Daniel Locallo, left, and defense Lawyer for Drew Peterson Steve Greenberg speak with the media as they leave the Will County Courthouse for lunch, Wednesday, Feb. 20, in Joliet, during the second day of a hearing in the former suburban Chicago police officer's request for a new trial. During the hearing Locallo testified as the defense sought to bolster arguments Peterson deserved a retrial on charges he murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Peterson's attorneys contend his former lead trial attorney, Joel Brodsky, botched his case. Locallo told the judge that Brodsky made a major mistake by calling one witness whose testimony badly backfired on the defense. AP Photo
