A 2007 triple murder of a family in a small town in Connecticut horrified the state, and has become central to the debate over abolishing the death penalty.

The sole survivor of the attack, Dr. William Petit, has become a vocal supporter of the death penalty and now leads a grassroots organization supporting the "three strikes and your'e out" law.  Colin McEnroe, Hartford Courant columnist and host of the Colin McEnroe Show on WNPR, speaks with us about how the fight for criminal justice reform has been influenced by the Petit murders.
