NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Jurors are expected to hear the rest of a confession by a man on trial for a brutal Connecticut home invasion that left a mother and her two daughters dead.

Prosecutors started to play the recorded statement Joshua Komisarjevsky (koh-mih-sar-JEV'-skee) gave to police immediately after the crime in July 2007. He admits to attacking Dr. William Petit with a bat and molesting his 11-year-old daughter. But he blames his co-defendant, Steven Hayes, for killing Petit's wife and two daughters.

A judge stopped the recording early Wednesday, saying a juror was having a tough time.

Hayes, who was convicted last year and is on death row, blamed Komisarjevsky for escalating the violence. Prosecutors say both paroled burglars are equally responsible.

Komisarjevsky faces a possible death sentence if convicted.
