Joshua Komisarjevsky, Jurors decided Friday on the death penalty for Cheshire home invasion killer Joshua Komisarjevsky, rejecting weeks of defense evidence that portrayed him as a man damaged by childhood sexual abuse and a strict religious upbringing while struggling with longtime mental health issues.
A family bound for hours as two masked men ransacked their home. A mother raped and strangled. Two daughters, tied to their beds, one sexually assaulted, the other able to break free, but unable to escape her burning home. A father, viciously beaten with a baseball bat and left in the basement.
After deliberating for nearly 20 hours over five days, a jury of seven women and five men decided that Komisarjevsky, 31, a serial burglar from Cheshire, should be executed for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, during a home invasion and arson at their Cheshire home on July 23, 2007.
Komisarjevsky admitted spotting Hawke-Petit and Michaela at a local supermarket hours before the crime and following them home.
