Jury hears testimony Conn. killer's daughter, 9Jury sees videotaped interview of killer's 9-year-old daughter in Conn. home invasion trial
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) ' Jurors have seen a videotape of the 9-year-old daughter of a Connecticut man facing a possible death sentence for a home invasion that killed three people.
The daughter of Joshua Komisarjevsky giggles a lot as she talks to a child welfare expert about her dogs and other animals and her toys. At one point she says she used to play with "this man's son Josh" and says he went to jail for something.
Komisarjevsky's attorneys played the video over his objections as they try to persuade the jury to spare him the death penalty.
Komisarjevsky and his co-defendant, Steven Hayes, were convicted of murder in the killing of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters at their Cheshire home. Hayes is on death row.
