Conn. convict's lawyers want daughter to testify

Judge closing court for hearing on effort to call convict's daughter to testify in Conn. trial By The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) ' A judge will hold a hearing closed to the public that will focus on efforts by attorneys for a Connecticut man facing a possible death sentence for killing a woman and her two daughters during a home invasion to call his 9-year-old daughter to testify.

New Haven Superior Court Judge Jon Blue ruled Thursday that the evidentiary hearing will be held Nov. 14.

Attorneys for Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee) want his daughter to testify, possibly by videotape. But an attorney for the girl's guardian filed a motion to quash their subpoena, citing sensitive issues.

Komisarjevsky faces life in prison or the death penalty for killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters in their Cheshire home in 2007.
