US home invasion killer sentenced to death

US home invasion killer sentenced to death, will join accomplice on death row By The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (AP) ' A U.S. man has been sentenced to death for killing a woman and her two daughters during a night of terror in their suburban home that halted momentum to abolish the death penalty in the state of Connecticut.

Joshua Komisarjevsky joins accomplice Steven Hayes and nine other men on Connecticut's death row. The state's last execution in 2005 was the first since 1960. The 31-year-old Komisarjevsky will likely spend decades in prison.

A jury condemned Komisarjevsky to death Dec. 9. He was sentenced by Friday. A jury had recommended the death penalty.

The two paroled burglars tormented a family of four in the affluent suburb before killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit and leaving her daughters to die in a fire.
