Susan Doman refuses to watch the made for television movie surrounding the death of her sister Kathleen Savio. She says she doesn't need another reminder of the brutal murder that took away her loved one nine years ago.

"It is still hard to realize that she's gone. I choose not to watch it because of the memories”, says Doman.

The Lifetime movie, “Untouchable: The Drew Peterson Story” aired for the first time tonight. The flick centers around former Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson who is accused of killing Savio in 2004. He's also a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy who went missing in 2007.

Doman says, "I'd like people to look at the movie and see two women that fought and that hopefully they will be able to get justice. My sister was a wonderful person and Stacy was a wonderful mom...they didn't deserve this."

Doman says she hasn't seen any trailers or previews of the film, and probably never will. Despite not tuning in, she knows what her sister would think of the production.

"I think if my sister Kathleen saw the movie, she'd be embarrassed to see her life displayed out on television like that. The tragedy that she had to go through”, says Doman.

Peterson remains in jail for Savio's murder. No date has been set for his trial, although Doman says they expect proceedings to start in late spring to early summer.
