Drew Peterson must stay behind bars while he fights charges that he murdered his third wife, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled Monday. Peterson has been in jail since 2009 without a trial.

After two years in jail awaiting trial for the death of Kathleen Savio, retired Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson. Prosecutors are appealing a ruling that prevents them from using hearsay statements in court. The hearsay statements include a claim from Stacy Peterson’s pastor that she gave a false alibi for Peterson for the night that Savio died. Stacy Peterson is also reported to have told coworkers that Drew Peterson once held a knife to her neck and threatened to kill her.

The case apparently has little physical evidence against Drew Peterson. His is still a suspect in the death of Stacy Peterson, but has not been charged.
