Both sides rest in Conn. home invasion sentencing
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Both sides have rested their case against a Connecticut man facing a possible death sentence for killing a woman and her two daughters in a 2007 home invasion.
Attorneys for Joshua Komisarjevsky ended their defense earlier Tuesday in New Haven Superior Court. The Hartford Courant reports that prosecutors also rested after playing an audiotaped confession of two burglaries the men committed in Cheshire the night before the killings.
The jury that convicted Komisarjevsky will decide whether he should get life in prison or a death sentence.
Closing arguments are expected Friday.
Komisarjevsky and co-defendant Steven Hayes were convicted of capital felony and other charges stemming from the killings of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, at their Cheshire home.
Hayes is on death row.
