A judge will decide next week whether to delay the trial of a former Bolingbrook police officer accused of murdering his former wife.

Attorneys for Drew Peterson asked Will County Circuit Judge Stephen White to delay the June 14 start of the trial.

Will County State's Attorney's spokesman Chuck Pelkie says White indicated he will announce a decision on Wednesday.

Lead attorney Joel Brodsky said Friday he asked for a delay until Aug. 23 because the prosecution proposed to call four new expert witnesses, including a neuropathologist.

Peterson has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 2004 death of his ex-wife, Kathleen Savio. He's been named a suspect but isn't charged in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

Peterson denies any involvement in Stacy Peterson's disappearance.
