Rapist, killer Steven Hayes says ‘I just snapped’ during Connecticut home invasion
Man guilty of raping, killing and burning family complains about prison life
"I started to lose it," Hayes said. "Then I looked out the window and saw an unmarked police car. And I just snapped."
Next he raped and strangled Hawke-Petit before the house and the girls were set fire to.
Hayes claims he did not light the flame.
The pair were then captured by police as they attempted to flee the burning home.
Asked what he would say to Petit, who was the only family member to survive the home invasion, he acknowledged he is unable to earn his forgiveness.
"I don't know if there's anything I could say. I definitely feel sorry but that doesn't change things. I'd try to answer his questions," he told the paper. "I don't deserve to live," he said. "I don't want to live."
He claims he is being mistreated by prison guards at the Northern Correctional Institution.
"Nobody's supposed to be treated the way we're treated here. I was sentenced to death, not psychological torment," he said of what he claims are denials to basic human needs.
Hayes has filed a civil lawsuit in federal court in which he claims he is being denied medical care and this regular "harassment and psychological torture" by jailers.
He is seeking $500,000 in damages.
