July 2007, Joshua Komisarjevsky and and Steven Hayes invaded a home in Cheshire; beat and tied up Dr. William Petit; raped and strangled his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit; molested one of their daughters; and set the family's house on fire before attempting to flee.
The two daughters -- 17-year-old Hayley Petit and 11-year-old Michaela Petit, both of whom had been tied to their beds -- died of smoke inhalation. Petit escaped to a neighbor's home.
Hayes was convicted in Dec. 2010, and sentenced to death, Komisarjevsky, convicted Oct. 12,2011, most likely will also get the death penalty.
