Former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson and his attorney say they will fight to keep relatives of his third wife from gaining control of her estate. Peterson made an appearance on WVON Radio's Matt and Perri Show Friday morning. He claims Kathleen Savio's father and sisters' attempts to file a wrongful death lawsuit against him in order to control the estate are motivated by money.

"Their actions to take over Kathleen's estate doesn't surprise me at all," Peterson said.

"We can't see how, if anyone was ever gonna be appointed, it would be these two," said Joel Brodsky, Peterson's attorney.

Savio's death was originally ruled an accident but has been re-classified as a homicide. She died in a bathtub.

Peterson has not been charged in that case or in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
