Survivor testifies in Conn. home invasion trial
Doctor whose family was killed in home invasion in Connecticut testifies again
By The Associated Press

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) ' A doctor whose wife and two daughters were killed in a home invasion in Connecticut is describing how he was attacked with a baseball bat.

It's the second time Dr. William Petit has had to talk a jury through his ordeal.

Petit testified Tuesday in New Haven Superior Court in the trial of Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee). The 31-year-old faces a possible death sentence if convicted.

His co-defendant, Steven Hayes, was sentenced to death last year. Petit also testified at that trial.

Petit says he awoke to a warm liquid running down his face and initially wasn't sure if it was a dream. He says he saw two people, one of whom said "if he moves put a bullet in him."
