Girl whose 6 family members were killed recovering

HOUSTON (AP) — A 15-year-old girl suburban Houston girl who survived an attack in which her parents and four younger siblings were killed says she's on the road to recovery. The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/W7DO9W ) reports that Cassidy Stay also thanked first responders Saturday during a gathering in her hometown of Spring to honor her and her family. Stay was released from a hospital Friday, two days after the attack in which her skull was fractured by a bullet graze. Authorities say her aunt's ex-husband, Ronald Lee Haskell, stormed into the family's home Wednesday and fatally shot her parents and four siblings, who ranged in age from 4 to 13 years old. They say Stay survived by playing dead and called police to warn that Haskell intended to go to her grandparents' house next. ___ Information from: Houston Chronicle, http://www.houstonchronicle.com
