Drew Peterson, the former Bolingbrook police officer serving time for killing his third wife, asked a judge to silence his former attorney Joel Brodsky and a judge granted the motion Thursday. The gag order comes after Brodsky told a Chicago television station he was considering revealing what happened to both of Peterson’s wives. Peterson’s fourth wife Stacy disappeared in 2007 and has never been found.
