The trial for Steven Hayes will resume on Wednesday morning after health issues prompted two delays in the case of a violent home invasion in Cheshire.

Steven Hayes is on trial, charged with the brutal slayings of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, in 2007 in their home. Jennifer’s husband, Dr. William Petit, survived the attack and has been attending the hearing.

Court ended early last Thursday after Hayes reportedly had seizure-like symptoms. The trial was scheduled to go on Monday, but Judge Jon Blue was hospitalized for two days with an undisclosed ailment.

When testimony begins this morning, police are expected to recount their response.

Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky, who awaits trial, face the possibility of the death penalty if convicted of the capital felony, murder and sexual assault charges.
