Oak Brook police officer Stephen Peterson will have to wait another month to find out if his decision to stash three guns for his infamous father will cost him his job.

The Oak Brook Board of Fire and Police Commissioners "is not yet in a position to render a decision in this matter," according to news release issued by the village.

The dismissal hearing, originally scheduled for Monday evening, has been postponed until 7 p.m. Feb. 2.

The commissioners planned to meet as scheduled Monday to discuss the matter in closed session.

Peterson is the son of former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, who is charged with murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Stephen Peterson has admitted to temporarily storing guns for his father shortly after Drew Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, went missing.
