Second Conn. home invasion killer is sentenced to death

By NBC News and news services

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A Connecticut man was sentenced Friday to die for killing a woman and her two daughters during a night of terror in their suburban home, a gruesome crime that unsettled the suburbs and halted momentum to abolish the death penalty in the state.

Joshua Komisarjevsky will be joining Steven Hayes on death row for killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11. He is scheduled to be executed in July.

The girls were tied to their beds and doused in gasoline before the house was set ablaze; they died of smoke inhalation. Komisarjevsky was convicted of the killings and of sexually assaulting Michaela.

1. a little over a year ago,

i was at an event with the mother's sister in this case. i wish i knew how to reach her and let her know how much i hope for her and her family that the healing can begin now that this is over.

but with the appeals process, sadly, it probably won't be over for years and years, so let me rephrase that. i hope they gain some peace with this verdict and sentence.

3. I hope the victim's family receives some benefit from this.

I am against the DP, but if it's going to happen, I hope some good comes from it.
