The two suspects allegedly texted back and forth about the crime, one even said he was putting his kids to bed before he headed out to perpetrate the act. In addition, cell phone photos recovered from one of the suspect's cameras gave photographic evidence - which wasn't shown to the jury, only described.
Mark Petit, the lone survivor has done the best he can to make it through the trial. He left during an account of the rape of his 11 year old daughter. During the description of the photos, he remained composed.
His 11 year old daughter is said to have died a very painful death, as the front of her clothing was burned worse than the back indicating that she had been exposed to fire.
Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky are the names of the suspects. Hayes is going through his trial right now, and then Komisarjevsky will stand trial. They are innocent until proven guilty.
