Conn. Killer Sentenced to Death

Joshua Komisarjevsky, one of the defendants found guilty of the 2007 home-invasion rape and killings of a Connecticut woman and her two daughters that shocked the country, will be sentenced to death Friday in New Haven Superior Court. Komisarjevsky will join Steven Hayes on death row. The court found Hayes guilty of raping and strangling Jennifer Hawke-Petit while Komisarjevsky sexually assaulted her 11-year-old daughter Michaela. Michaela and her 17-year-old sister, Hayley, were tied to their beds, doused with gasoline, and died of smoke inhalation when the house was set on fire. Their father, William, survived the horrific crime.
