A man convicted of capital murder in a deadly 2007 Connecticut home invasion has attempted suicide several times since his arrest, and wants to receive the death penalty, a forensic psychiatrist testified Wednesday.
In March, Steven Hayes told a psychologist that he no longer wanted to commit suicide, "but intended to let the state do it," said Paul Amble, an assistant clinical professor at the Yale University School of Medicine. Amble was asked by Judge Jon Blue to evaluate Hayes to determine if he was competent to stand trial.
Hayes, 47, was convicted earlier this month of 16 of the 17 charges against him - including nine counts of murder and capital murder and four counts of kidnapping - in the deaths of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters, 17-year-old Hayley Petit and 11-year-old Michaela Petit.
Prosecutors allege Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky invaded the Petit home, beat Jennifer Hawke-Petit's husband bloody, strangled Hawke-Petit, set the house afire and tried to flee. The crime shocked the well-to-do New Haven suburb of Cheshire and drew national attention.
Set him up in jail
Lets waste tax-payer money
Keep in there in waiting for years before his trial
Finally take him to death row
Painlessly inject him so he can rest in piece
Only in Amerikkka.
Per Chance do you know where i cna Find Army Nurse Deborah Christiane D'Angelo From New Jersey?
He's just going to try and kill himself in jail. Obviously. When he tries, we're going to lock him up in a safer-cell with less chance for suicide. The amount of money wasted on this fool is absurd. I can't wait to pay for someone elses hatred! ðŸ™‚
I love how they say "allege" when im shock that the cops didn't kill them while they were ramming the barricade with the familys Chrysler Pacifica.I guess they were just allegedly trying to escape also.
Wow, if I failed the 1st suicide attempt and was compelled to try again I would make sure I got it right the 2nd time!!!
probably wants compassion. send him to iraq and let them do it.
