A hearing is set to resume that will determine if former suburban Chicago police officer Drew Peterson gets a new trial on charges he murdered his third wife.

Peterson's lawyers are asking for a retrial on grounds that his lead attorney at the 2012 trial failed to adequately defend him.

Will County Judge Edward Burmila heard a full day of testimony Tuesday before recessing without a ruling. The hearing resumes Wednesday.

Lead state prosecutor James Glasgow told reporters Tuesday he expects a ruling Wednesday.
