One of the two convicted killers in the infamous Petit Family home invasion in Connecticut Steven Hayes has filed a lawsuit against the corrections system. As Lee Moran reports in the Daily News, the complaint focuses on the lack of kosher cuisine. Hayes had converted to Orthodox Judiasm during an earlier time when he was a guest of the state. Here is that coverage.
The Petit home invasion had been compared to the senseless killing of the Clutter family, which Truman Capote captured in his book "In Cold Blood." Like the two thugs Capote depicted, Hayes and his partner Josh Komisarjevsky were and probably still are petty criminals. Both received the death penalty, which holds despite CT's dropping the death penalty.
Every day of the four trials (guilt/sentencing for each of the two), the lone survivor Dr. Petit showed up. He had lost his wife and two young daughters, just approaching adulthood. His story does, though, have a happy ending. He married his assistant at the foundation he started. They had a baby boy.
