Cheshire killer Steven Hayes found unresponsive in his cell

CHESHIRE - The Connecticut Department of Corrections is investigating an incident involving one of the convicts on death row for the deadly Cheshire home invasion.

Officials say a prison guard found Steven Hayes unresponsive in his cell yesterday.

Authorities say staff revived him and he was rushed to a hospital, where he is in stable condition.

Published reports say Hayes may have saved up his medication and took it all at once in an attempt to overdose.

Hayes and an accomplice were sentenced to death for killing a woman and her two daughters in Cheshire in 2007.
