PLAINVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

A memorial mass was held Tuesday in memory of the three women killed during a home invasion in Cheshire six years ago.

It was July 23, 2007, when two men, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Stephen Hayes, entered the Petit home, torturing and assaulting the family before setting the home on fire.

Dr. William Petit was the sole survivor of the attack. His wife Jennifer and two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, were all killed.

The memorial mass was held at Our Lady of Mercy parish in Plainville at 8 a.m.
