During the hearing Locallo spoke as the defense sought to bolster arguments that Peterson deserved a retrial on charges he murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Peterson's attorneys contend his former lead trial attorney, Joel Brodsky, botched his case. Locallo told the judge that Brodsky made a major mistake by calling one witness whose testimony badly backfired on the defense. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
