This happy Connecticut family, William Petit with his daughters Michaela (front) and Hayley, and his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, is vacationing in Cape Cod in 2007.
And this is Steven Hayes who along with a bumbling accomplice, brutalized all three women while Mr. Petit lay in his own blood, bound in the basement. Then they doused the women with gasoline, having tied them in their beds, and burned them to death. The father managed to escape to call for help but it was too late.
A jury just sentenced Steven Hayes to death for these unspeakable crimes. I hope they don't take 20 years to carry out the sentence. I doubt it'll take that long as he'll probably get killed in prison, I hope as brutally as he killed this family.
I've never wanted to kill anybody but, if I were asked by the state of Connecticut to pull the trigger, throw the switch, push the plunger, or pull the gallows lever, I'd take particular delight in taunting this guy before I did it.
Home invasions are on the rise people....arm yourselves and be careful out there. If a dude with dead eyes like this comes into your home uninvited, double tap him in the heart and put one between his eyes, then ask what he wants.
