NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The trial of a Connecticut paroled burglar charged with a brutal home invasion that left a woman and her two daughters dead is resuming.
A state police detective is scheduled to testify for the second day running on Tuesday in New Haven Superior Court about evidence collected at the scene.
Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee) faces a possible death sentence if convicted of the crime in July 2007 in Cheshire.
His co-defendant, Steven Hayes, was convicted last year of strangling Jennifer Hawke-Petit and killing her two daughters, Hayley and Michaela. Hayes was sentenced to death.
Komisarjevsky admits to beating Dr. William Petit with a bat and molesting his younger daughter, but blames Hayes for the three killings. Hayes blamed Komisarjevsky, but prosecutors say both men are equally responsible.
