Jury recommends death penalty for Steven Hayes
From the Hartford Courant. Hayes has been sentenced to death for the murders of three members of the Hawke-Petit family in Cheshire, Conn.
A Superior Court jury decided today to sentence Steven Hayes to death for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Hayley and Michaela, during a seven-hour home invasion, robbery and arson at their Cheshire home in July 2007.
Hayes stood by as the jury of seven women and five men sentenced him to death row.
The jury sentenced Hayes to death on the first of six possible death-penalty counts: killing Hawke-Petit and Michaela and Hayley in the course of a single action.
