The Bolingbrook Police Pension Board will hold a hearing on whether convicted killer Drew Peterson's pension payments should end. The board made the decision during a Thursday meeting in which no evidence was presented on why Peterson's $79,000 annual pension should be revoked. Pension Board attorney Richard Reimer says an outside attorney hired to determine if there was enough evidence to stop the payments says "there exists sufficient evidence." No hearing date was set. Peterson's attorney, Steven Greenberg, argued the pension board was acting prematurely, noting Peterson is appealing his conviction. Peterson is serving a 38-year prison sentence after he was convicted in 2012 of killing Kathleen Savio. The investigation into her 2004 death was reopened after Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared in 2007.
