Jury begins deliberation in Connecticut home invasion case

Jurors began deliberations Monday in the trial of Steven Hayes, the man accused of killing three members of a Connecticut family in a 2007 home invasion.

Hayes, 47, who has pleaded not guilty, is on trial in New Haven, Connecticut, for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters.

The killings took place in the New Haven suburb of Cheshire early July 23, 2007. The home of William Petit, his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and two daughters was invaded in the middle of the night by Hayes and co-defendant Joshua Komisarjevsky, prosecutors say.

    No surprise these are former cops that did this to this innocent family. But that's what cops like to do... Spill innocent blood

    Detroit cops are bad too. Lazy good for nothing wastes of society. Like Mark Fuhrman on FOX news. Now CNN is having Elliot Spitzer. The news isn't news its all trash that belongs at a grocery checkout aisle.

    There are thousands of law enforcement officers in this country protecting us by the book. Day and night. Thank you to the arresting officers on this horrible case. Good work.

    Mark Fuhrman was a good cop. Saying the n word has nothing to do with a black man having murdered two white people.
    What do you think Mark Fuhrman decided one night while eating dinner, "oh I think I will turn myself into a knife wielding Road Runner and go over to O.J. Simpson's ex wife house and see if I can cut off her head." Then have some guy show up, hide off to the side. Then get him while he is in shock from what he has just discovered! Oh and thank God he was able to find a rare pair of very expensive Bruno Maglia shoes exactly like the ones O.J. Simpson purchased so he could zip around there making shoe prints with victim's blood. Oh then he just happened to get lucky and O.J. had cut his knuckle. Give me a break.
    You judge someone because he says a name which the people being referenced say themselves. If that were not true, then you can determine him having said it as being offensive.
