Convicted killer Joshua Komisarjevsky plans to speak in court during his official sentencing.
This, according to a letter he reportedly sent to a pen pal who has been communicating with the convict via written notes.
The news was reported by The New Haven Register, which stated that a copy of the letter had been given to them by the pen pal, whose name has not been divulged. In the letter, Komisarjevsky allegedly stated that he "has something to say" when he appears in court on Jan. 27.
A recent motion asking the court to grant Komisarjevsky a new trial was denied and the killer is scheduled to be in New Haven Superior Court this Friday to receive his sentence — death by lethal injection.
During his trial for the murder of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, during a 2007 home invasion in Cheshire, Komisarjevsky did no take the stand in his own defense, nor did he address the court during his penalty phase. It is not known what Komisarjevsky plans to say on Friday.
