Steven Hayes, the notorious killer who sits on death row for the 2007 slayings of a Cheshire woman and her two daughters, wants to waive his appeals and proceed to his execution, a path that serial killer Michael Ross took before being put to death in 2005.
In a letter to the Courant, Hayes, 49, said he is the subject of "cruel and unusual punishment" by prison staff at Northern Correctional Institution in Somers, treatment he claims has "been escalating" since March 2012.
"I was willing to live with the intense grief from my past actions, and I still am willing," Hayes wrote in the letter, dated Sept. 29, 2012. "However, I cannot live with the intense tourcher (sic), torment, harassment, and the resulting psychological trauma dished out by the Dept. of Corr. staff here at Northern. I was sentenced to death, not sentenced to tourcher (sic) and punitive treatment until death."
Hayes said he would be making "a formal announcement" about his decision to go to "the death chamber" during "the 2nd week of October," but he did not say how he would announce it.

Malloy repealed the death penalty in April for all future cases. With that in mind I'm sure this scumbag will not be executed.
Words fail me. The people of Connecticut, like most Americans, and in fact most Canadians and most Europeans, favor the death penalty for the most heinous criminals. The elites, the faculty, the editorial writers, on the other hand want to indulge their habit of moral posturing and preening and the people be damned.
He wants to die well what are they waiting for
make his day!
Awwww, poor baby. “Cruel and unusual punishment?” I guess what he did to the Petit family wasn’t cruel or unusual.
If he wants to die, I’ll gladly provide the rope. But I’m sure he’s not going anywhere. He’s just going to continue to torture Dr. Petit and the rest of the family and the taxpayers will continue to pay for his maintenance indefinitely.
There is no punishment appropriate enough for what he did.
“Can’t stand the torture anymore,” said the man who tortured his victims to death.
CT being a full gospel moonbat state don’t they have assisted suicide? If so maybe he could explore that angle.
BTT in light of the Newtown spree killing and the attempts to exploit it to further the gun-control agenda.
From the Wiki entry on the Petit family home-invasion (cited from the Newtown thread):
“During this time, Hayes and Komisarjevsky escalated the aggravated nature of their crimes. Komisarjevsky sexually assaulted the 11-year-old daughter, Michaela. Komisarjevsky, who had photographed the sexual assault of the youth on his cell phone, then provoked Hayes to rape Hawke-Petit. While Hayes was raping Hawke-Petit on the floor of her living room, Komisarjevsky entered the room announcing that William Petit had escaped. Hayes then strangled Hawke-Petit, doused her lifeless body and parts of the house including the daughters’ rooms with gasoline. The daughters, while tied to their beds, had both been doused with gasoline; each had her head covered with a pillowcase. A fire was then ignited, and Hayes and Komisarjevsky fled the scene. 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela both died from smoke inhalation.”
The father (William) escaped, but wasn’t able to summon help in time. If he’d had a gun hidden in the house and knew how to, and was prepared to, use it, things would have turned out VERY differently.
