NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut man facing a possible death sentence for a brutal home invasion is objecting to a jury seeing a videotaped interview of his 9-year-old daughter, but the judge sided with his attorneys in allowing the video.

Joshua Komisarjevsky, speaking for the first time in his trial other than a taped confession, told the judge Wednesday that he didn’t want to put his daughter in a position of having to help one of the most hated people in America.

Komisarjevsky’s lawyers sought his daughter’s testimony, hoping to persuade New Haven Superior Court jurors to spare him the death penalty. Judge Jon Blue agreed that the attorneys have the final say.

Komisarjevsky and his co-defendant were convicted of murder in the killing of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters at their Cheshire home.

    Can’t they just haul this major POS out back and shoot him in the head? I do not care what he thinks. He is wasting precious oxygen.
