Suspect in Spring killings collapses in court

HOUSTON, TX – The alleged gunman in Wednesday night’s tragic shooting, 33-year-old Ronald Lee Haskell, stood before a judge this morning on capital murder charges.

Haskell could barely stand to see him. He collapsed in court and had to be rolled out in an office chair.

Many are still mourning about the six Houston family members left dead, including both parents and four of their five children.

Grandparents of the victims, Tom and Joyce stay spoke about the only survivor, their 15-year-old granddaughter, Cassidy.

“I was so sorry about everything but I’m so thankful you’re still here with us,” said Joyce Stay.

In Logan, Utah people gathered for a candlelight vigil to remember the family.  Haskell had previous history of domestic violence with his ex-wife in Utah before he moved to Houston.
