A former policeman who is accused of murdering his third wife has given an extraordinary interview from jail complaining he has been portrayed as 'sinister'.
Drew Peterson, 57, has been imprisoned for the past three years awaiting trial for the killing of Kathleen Savio.
He is also the chief suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
The one-time policeman of the year, told a reporter at the Chicago Sun Times: 'I’m sick of being called sinister.'
Instead he insisted he was a romantic and his disastrous track record with women was not his fault - it was because he picked 'women who changed after getting married.'
The ex-cop was brought to national attention when his fourth wife Stacy Peterson disappeared in October 2007.
He was suspected of killing her and disposing of her body, which has never been found.
Authorities then reopened the investigation into the March 2004 death of his third wife Kathleen Savio, who was initially thought to have drowned accidentally in her bathtub.
But it was reclassified as a homicide after her body was exhumed and a medical examiner ruled she drowned following a struggle.
Peterson was arrested and charged with her death in May 2009 and is being held on $20million bail. Read More
