Ex-cop Drew Peterson has just been convicted of murdering his 3rd wife -- three years after he was initially charged with the crime.

Peterson's 3rd wife -- a woman named Kathleen Savio -- was found dead in a bathtub in 2004. Her death was initially ruled an accident, but the death was reclassified when Peterson's 4th wife mysteriously disappeared in 2007.

Peterson faces a max of 60 years in prison.

Peterson's 4th wife is still missing. She is presumed dead and 58-year-old Peterson is a suspect in the case, though he has yet to be charged with a crime.

Rob Lowe played Peterson in the Lifetime movie about the murderer's life called "Drew Peterson: Untouchable."

This guy might as well tell where his fourth wife is. He's not getting out in his lifetime.

How can someone drown in an almost empty tub? And they didnt noticed the gashes in her head? Cops dropped the ball big time with this one. Or were they trying to protect their own?

I truly hope they don't keep him in isolation to protect him from the general population. Being an ex cop, they probably will.
