Drew Peterson asks to attend son's graduation

June 6, 2011 (CHICAGO)

On Monday, his lawyers filed a new motion seeking his release from jail.

Defense attorneys argue Peterson should be released on electronic monitoring because prosecutors launched an appeal, delaying the trial.

Peterson has been in isolation for 11 months as he awaits trial for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

He is being held on $20 million bail and is a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.
