Will Drew Take the Stand?

The prosecution will rest its case in the Kathleen Savio murder trial, and the defense will pick up that baton and begin its case.

How the defense shakes out is still anyone's guess.

Lead defense attorney Joel Brodsky said he has about 10 witnesses to call during what is expected to be two days of testimony. The defense is certain to call first on Savio's divorce attorney, Harry Smith.

But the team hasn't yet decided whether to put Drew Peterson on the stand.

"We're still thinking about it," Brodsky said Monday. He said the final decision is up to Peterson himself.

Most observers would caution against putting the surly and sarcastic former police officer in front of a jury, but the trial has been anything but standard.
