CHESHIRE - A judge has ruled the trial of the second man charged in the deadly Cheshire home invasion will not be moved to southwestern Connecticut.

Attorneys for Joshua Komisarjevsky tried to move the trial out of New Haven because they say he was "demonized" during the trial of co-defendant, Steven Hayes.

Police say Komisarjevsky and Hayes killed Jennifer Hawke Petit and her two daughters in 2007.

Hayes was convicted and sentenced to death last year.

Jury selection for Komisarjevsky's trial starts March 16.
