NEW HAVEN - Jurors in the murder trial for Steven Hayes are speaking out a day after they reccommended he receive the death penalty.

Jury foreman Ian Cassell says they were "disgusted" and "horrified" by the evidence in the fatal Cheshire home invasion.

Cassell says some jurors were initially on the fence about whether Hayes should get life or death, but he says the evidence ultimately persuaded all jurors to vote yesterday for death.
