Conn. man convicted in deadly '07 home invasion

By The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) ' A Connecticut jury that convicted a paroled burglar of murdering a woman and her two daughters during a gruesome 2007 home invasion will now decide whether he should be put to death.

Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee), whose accomplice is already on death row, was convicted Thursday of all 17 charges he faced, including capital felony killing, kidnapping, arson and sexual assault.

During the crime in an affluent suburb, family members were tied up, molested, doused in gasoline and left to die in a fire. After the verdict, Komisarjevsky yawned as he was led out of the courtroom.

The penalty phase begins Oct. 24. Defense lawyers say their 31-year-old client was sexually abused as a child, suffered multiple concussions and later turned to drugs.
