Police took Peterson into custody at Weber and Lilly Cache roads during a traffic stop at about 5:30 p.m.

Savio, 40, was found dead in a dry bathtub in her Bolingbrook home in March 2004.
At the time, police failed to find anything suspicious, and her death was ruled an accidental drowning by a coroner’s jury.

Savio’s body was exhumed from its grave. An autopsy conducted in November 2007 determined Savio was the victim of a homicide.
