A Connecticut man will be formally sentenced to death for the home invasion killings of a Connecticut woman and her two daughters.     

Joshua Komisarjevsky will be sentenced Friday in New Haven Superior Court after a jury last month delivered a death verdict.     

Komisarjevsky is joining co-defendant Steven Hayes on death row for the 2007 killings of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters in their Cheshire home.     

Hayes raped and strangled Hawke-Petit, while Komisarjevsky sexually assaulted her 11-year-old daughter, Michaela.     

Michaela and her 17-year-old sister, Hayley, were tied to their beds, doused in gas and died of smoke inhalation after the house was set on fire.    

Komisarjevsky and Dr. William Petit, the sole survivor of the crime, are expected to address the court at Friday's sentencing.
