The Connecticut man who lost his wife and daughters in a brutal home invasion in 2007 said Wednesday it was ‘sad’ one of the killers had his death sentence revoked to comply with new state laws.
Dr. William Petit was tied up in the basement of his New Haven home during the July 23, 2007 attack. He could only listen as his wife was raped and murdered by Steven Hayes. Petit managed to flee to a neighbor’s home as his daughters perished in the fire Hayes lit.
‘It is a very sad day when a prolonged trial and decision and sentencing by a jury that took 4.5 months to seat is overturned by a legislature that ignores the wishes of the people of CT,’ he said in a tweet on Wednesday.
