BRIDGEPORT - A judge has ruled a man convicted of murdering three people in Bridgeport can't represent himself during the penalty phase of his trial.

A jury will determine if Richard Roszkowski should be put to death.

He was convicted of fatally shooting a man, a woman and her 9-year-old daughter on Seaview Avenue in September 2006.

Roszkowski was deemed competent to stand trial in April, but a judge yesterday ruled he can't defend himself because of mental illness.

He was previously sentenced to death for the crime but a judge threw out that original sentence on appeal.
