A jury on Friday recommended that Joshua Komisarjevsky receive the death penalty for his role in a deadly Connecticut home invasion in 2007.
At a later date, a judge will weigh the jury's recommendation in sentencing Komisarjevsky, who was convicted in October on six felony charges.
Komisarjevsky's accomplice, Steven Hayes - the first defendant to stand trial in the case - was sentenced to death after a jury convicted him on 16 of 17 charges last year.
Prosecutors argued that Hayes and Komisarjevsky went into the Petit home, beat and tied up William Petit, raped and strangled his wife, molested one of their daughters and set the house on fire before attempting to flee.
The two daughters, who were both tied to their beds, died of smoke inhalation, while William Petit managed to escape from the basement, where he had been held.FULL STORY
