Kathleen Savio's sister glared at Drew Peterson from the witness stand Friday. Later, her face and voice tightened as she recalled learning from Peterson that her sister was dead.

But in sharing a conversation she had with Savio just six weeks before her drowning, Anna Marie Doman spoke calmly and without emotion, like someone who had told the story time and again.

"She was afraid," Doman said. "She said Drew had told her he was going to kill her. She wasn't going to make it to the divorce settlement, and she wasn't going to get his pension or the kids."
