Peterson's lawyers demand a mistrial after neighbor's testimony

The defense lawyers for a man accused of murdering his wife demanded another mistrial in just the second day of trial.

Drew Peterson is accused murdering his third wife Kathleen Savio in 2004.

Peterson's neighbor Thomas Pontrarelli was on the stand today.

He said that Peterson told him not to change the locks on his ex-wife's door and when he did, he found a bullet in his driveway.

The judge struck the neighbor's testimony from the record because there is no proof of the conversation.

The family of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, is still pretty upset. Peterson is also under investigation for her disappearance.

"You're going to see magic tricks from them and they're going to try to stay away as much as they can from the facts at hand," Pam Bosco, a family spokesperson, said.

Stacy's family believes Peterson's defense is all smoke and mirrors.
