It all came down to one holdout juror. As of last night, after more than 8 hours of deliberations, Ron Supalo of Bolingbrook
could not vote to convict 58-year-old Drew Peterson of murder.
He wrestled with the count of 11 to 1 when he went to bed Wednesday night.
Thursday, after 5 more hours of deliberations, he was convinced.
Supalo said he struggled with the hearsay testimony and the definition and his understanding of circumstantial evidence.
