AP: Killer of 3 says he considers requesting deathAP Exclusive: Connecticut killer on death row says he considers requesting a lethal injection
SOMERS, Conn. (AP) ' A death-row inmate convicted of murdering a Connecticut mother and her two daughters says he sometimes thinks about requesting a lethal injection.
Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-ski) says he believes the only way he will be put to death for the violent 2007 home invasion is to volunteer.
He spoke to The Associated Press on Monday in his first media interview since his conviction last year.
He tells the AP he also has nothing to say to his co-defendant, Steven Hayes. The men were sentenced to death for killing the mother and daughters after a night of terror in their suburban home.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy recently signed a law ending the state's death penalty for future crimes. But it doesn't apply to convicts already on death row, including Komisarjevsky and Hayes.
