Key ruling expected in Komisarjevsky penalty phase
The penalty phase of the trial for the second man convicted in the deadly Cheshire home invasion continues today.
A judge is expected to decide if the courtroom should be closed to the public when jurors watch videotaped testimony from Joshua Komisarjevsky's 9-year old daughter.
Komisarjevsky faces life in prison or the death penalty for killing Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters in 2007.
