Peterson found guilty of murdering his wife

ILLINOIS -- Former Illinois police officer Drew Peterson was found guilty of killing his wife, Kathleen Savio.

The jury returned a verdict after two days of deliberations.

In 2004, Peterson killed her and made it look like an accident.

Savio was found in her bathtub and the cause of death was initially ruled an accident.

After his fourth wife, Stacey Peterson, disappeared, police exhumed Savio's body and changed their finding to homicide.

Peterson now faces up to 60 years in prison.
