A jury condemned a U.S. man to death Friday for raping and strangling a woman and killing her two daughters in an attack that led to the defeat of a bill to abolish the death penalty in Connecticut and was compared to Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood."
"The only option he ever had was to go through life damaged," Bansley said in his closing argument.
Before the verdict was announced, defense attorney Walter Bansley said his client was prepared for a death sentence.
