Joshua Komisarjevsky was formally sentenced to death on Friday for killing a woman and her two daughters in Connecticut. He joins his accomplice on death row.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy reports:

Some say Joshua Komisarjevsky's crime has halted the move towards abolishing the death penalty in the state of Connecticut.

Speaking of his regrets just before being sentenced, he laid most of the blame on his acomplice, Steven Hayes, who he now joins on death row.

He and Hayes, both paroled burglars, were convicted of raping and strangling Jennifer Hawke Petit, the wife and mother, and sexually assautling 11-year-old Michaela Petit before setting their house on fire.

Both Michaela and her 17-year-old sister Hayley died in the fire.

The only survivor, Dr. William Petit, had been beaten with a baseball bat and tied up, but escaped.
