William Petit, Whose Wife and Daughters Were Murdered, to Marry Again
The couple met while Paluf, 34, was photographing events for the Petit Family Foundation. They became engaged after Christmas but have not set a wedding date, Petit's spokesman Rick Healey tells PEOPLE.
Petit, 55, has sat through the separate trials of two men accused of killing his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, and his two daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11.
Stephen Hayes was sentenced to death in November 2010. Last month a jury sentenced Joshua Komisarjevsky to death.
Petit will give his victim impact statement on Jan. 27, when the judge officially imposes the death sentence on Komisarjevsky.
