A judge has rejected a request by attorneys for Joshua Komisarjevsky, the man charged with a fatal home invasion to delay his trial for three months because of a lawmaker's comments.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys are choosing jurors for Komisarjevsky's trial in September.
His attorneys last week cited comments Sen. Edith Prague made that Komisarjevsky should be hung by his genitals from a tree.
New Haven Superior Court Judge Jon C. Blue called Prague's remarks "obviously inappropriate by any measure."
Prague said she wasn't sorry.
Prague said last week she would oppose repealing the state's death penalty after speaking with the lone survivor of the 2007 attacks in Cheshire, in which a mother and two daughters were killed. The other defendant in the case was sentenced to death last year.
