NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Testimony will continue in the trial of a Connecticut man to determine whether he should receive a death sentence for killing a woman and her two daughters in a home invasion.

Steven Hayes was convicted in New Haven Superior Court, where testimony resumes Monday.

The jury will decide whether he deserves execution or life in prison. A psychiatrist testified last week that Hayes told him he wanted to testify and “look like a monster” by expressing no remorse so that the jury would impose capital punishment.

But the psychiatrist said he did not know if Hayes genuinely wanted the death penalty.
