CHESHIRE - Prison officials say one of the two men convicted of killing a mother and her two daughters during the Cheshire home invasion is getting mental health treatment after trying to kill himself last week.

Prison officials say Joshua Komisarjevsky tried to hang himself last week shortly after he and his partner in the home invasion, Steven Hayes, were transferred to a prison in Pennsylvania.

Earlier this year, Komisarjevsky was resentenced to six life terms in prison for the 2007 deaths of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters.
