Doctor who survived after family was killed in 2007 Conn. home invasion remarries
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ¯¯¯ A Connecticut doctor whose wife and two daughters were killed in a home invasion in 2007 has remarried.
Dr. William Petit wed 34-year-old photographer Christine Paluf (PAY'-luff) on Sunday in West Hartford.
Rick Healey, a friend and family spokesman, says about 300 people attended the ceremony and the reception in Simsbury.
Paluf met Petit while working as a volunteer for the Petit Family Foundation, a charity set up by Dr. Petit in memory of his family after the killings in Cheshire.
Two men, Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee) and Steven Hayes, are on death row for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela.
Hawke-Petit's mother, Marybelle Hawke, has said her family welcomed the engagement and encouraged Petit to find peace and joy in his life.
