    Drew's bid to take his side show on the road was denied.

    Drew Peterson will have to stand trial in Will County after a judge denied his change of venue plea.

    Judge Steven White rejected the defense’s bid to have the trial moved. The defense believed that Peterson would have trouble finding an impartial jury.
    The judge is also expected to rule on the controversial "Drew's Law," which allows hearsay to be admitted as evidence in cases where prosecutors believe the victim was killed specifically to prevent them from testifying.

    Peterson is charged with the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. His fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007, and he is a suspect in that case as well.
