HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut Supreme Court will hear arguments next month on whether a man convicted of killing three people should get a new trial in part because of taped police calls never provided to the defense.
Both were resentenced to life in prison after the state’s death penalty was abolished.
Komisarjevsky’s attorneys argue the tapes show police failed to respond adequately to a 911 call regarding the home invasion. Komisarjevsky’s attorneys say the tapes significantly bolster their argument that police were motivated to undermine the credibility of Komisarjevsky’s police statements out of self-interest, guilt, anger and embarrassment.
The Hartford Courant reports that arguments are scheduled for Oct. 17.
