(CNN) - Testimony resumes Tuesday in the trial of Steven Hayes, the man accused of killing three members of a Connecticut family in a 2007 home invasion.
Hayes, 47, who has entered a plea of not guilty, is currently on trial in New Haven, Connecticut, for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters.
The killings took place in the New Haven suburb of Cheshire in the early hours of July 23, 2007.
The home of Dr. William Petit, his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit and two daughters was invaded in the middle of the night by Hayes and co-defendant Joshua Komisarjevsky, prosecutors say.
Connecticut State Police Det. Anthony Buglione, who interviewed Hayes following the incident, testified the duo beat Petit bloody and left him in the basement.
The two men then went upstairs and found Hawke-Petit and 11-year old Michaela Petit asleep in the master bedroom.
After tying Hawke-Petit to her bed, they led the girl to her room, tied her to her bed and put a pillowcase over her head, Hayes told Buglione.
They then found 17-year old Hayley Petit in her room and did the same, he said.
