Outside the courthouse, people are singing a song called "Drew the Lady Killer" to the tune of "Puff the Magic Dragon."
Dozens of people are cheering. Car and truck drivers honk their horns as they drive past.
3:15 p.m. 'I don't see you laughing now'
Nick Savio, the brother of Kathleen Savio, choked up outside the courthouse, calling the verdict "bittersweet."
"It's better than a White Sox World Series win," Savio said, his face quivering with emotion. "This has been a very long time coming."
He read a brief statement from the Savio family saying Kathleen can "now rest in peace."
"We all love her and will never forget her," Nick Savio said. The family said they plan to visit Kathleen's grave today and tell her the news.
Asked what he would say to Drew Peterson if he could speak to him, Nick Savio said he would tell him to "go have a cigar with your defense team. . .in jail. I don't see you laughing now."
3:10 p.m. Stacy's family holds out hope
Pam Bosco, a spokeswoman for the family of Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, said she hopes Stacy has her day in court too. Stacy Peterson disappeared in 2007.
Bosco said she believes it was Stacy's words that convicted Peterson. Now she hopes Peterson is charged with Stacy's murder.
"This man has to pay for Stacy," she said. "She still has a case."

The family thanked State's Atty. James Glasgow as Peterson was shackled.
Peterson looked grim as he told his attorneys, "Good job."
