JOLIET -- Jury deliberations began Wednesday in the Drew Peterson murder trial. After about 90-minutes, jurors had their first questions.

They requested phone records of a conversation between Drew and Stacy Peterson on the weekend Kathleen Savio died. They also wanted transcripts of testimony from Savio's divorce lawyer and a pastor who counseled Peterson's 4th wife, Stacy.

If Peterson is found guilty of killing his third wife, he faces 60-years in prison.

JOLIET -- The jury in the Drew Peterson case starts deliberations Wednesday. Closing arguments were presented Tuesday in the murder case against the former Chicago-area policeman. He's accused of killing his ex-wife.

His defense attorney said the prosecution is "trying to nail Jell-O to a tree," saying it has no evidence to prove its case. The prosecution told jurors to use common sense and listen to the death threats Savio told someone Peterson had made.
