Judge Rejects Plea Deal In Komisarjevsky Trial

A Superior Court judge has denied an effort by lawyers for Joshua Komisarjevsky to enter a guilty plea in the Cheshire home invasion murders.  His lawyers had offered to enter a guilty plea in exchange for a court-imposed sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole.  If convicted in a jury trial, Komisarjevsky faces the death penalty.  The other defendant in the case, Steven Hayes, was convicted at trial and sentenced to death.

In ruling against the request,  Judge Roland Fasano says he is “not inclined” to grant the motion,  even if he had authority to do so.

Komisarjevsky and Hayes are charged in the deaths of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters Hayley and Michaela at their Cheshire home.

    Well, so far so good. Andsince he has now proclaimed his guilt, let’s forego the t rial and just sentence him. Seriously, is the firing squad considered cruel and inhuman ? I wouldn’t see why. We would do in a dirty dozen that way real cheep !
