Man on death row set to be resentenced in Cheshire home invasion

One of the men sent to death row for the 2007 Cheshire home invasion murders is scheduled to be resentenced this week.



Joshua Komisarjevsky will have his sentence changed to life in prison because Connecticut acted to abolish the death penalty. 



Komisjarevsky is expected to be in court on Tuesday.



He's one of two men convicted in the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, in 2007.



The other man convicted in the case, Steven Hayes, was resentenced last month.
