Tonight HBO airs a documentary about some particularly horrifying events that took place in the town of Cheshire, Connecticut on July 23, 2007. Former endocrinologist William Petit’s wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit and daughters Michaela (11,) and Haley (17) were murdered during a terrifying home invasion that was supposed to be a quick robbery but turned into a brutal seven-hour torture. Now William Petit is trying to rebuild a new life and keep the nightmares at bay.
