A Beautiful Family Slaughtered...Justice Served Today Part 1

This in just now from the AP...

"NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut man was condemned to death Monday for a night of terror inside a suburban home in which a woman was strangled and her two daughters tied to their beds, doused in gasoline and left to die in a fire. Jurors in New Haven Superior Court voted unanimously to send Steven Hayes to death row after deliberating over the span of four days. The judge will impose the sentence on Dec. 2. Hayes looked straight ahead and had no obvious reaction as the jury’s sentence was announced. He will join nine other men on Connecticut’s death row. Komisarjevsky (the co-muderer) will be tried next year. Authorities said Hayes and Komisarjevsky broke into the house, beat Dr. William Petit, and forced his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, to withdraw money from a bank while the rest of her family remained under hostage at home. Hayes then sexually assaulted and strangled her, authorities said. Komisarjevsky, who will be tried next year, is charged with sexually assaulting their 11-year-old daughter, Michaela. Michaela and her 17-year-old sister, Hayley, were tied to their beds and doused in gasoline before the men set the house on fire, according to testimony. The girls died of smoke inhalation."

Burned alive. My skin still crawls. One of the most terrible crimes anyone could imagine. One monster down, one monster to go. Straight to Hell. Click on this post's title for all about this hideous story. As the Petit family knows, in John Lennon's words, "life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans." So true. God bless the Petit family, in heaven and on this good Earth.
