SPRING, Texas — Six white caskets containing the bodies of a suburban Houston couple and four of their five children have been wheeled into a church for funeral services not far from where the family was gunned down at their home a week ago.
Thirty-nine-year-old Stephen Stay, his 34-year-old wife Katie, and their four youngest children are being buried in a private ceremony after services Wednesday at their Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The couple's 15-year-old daughter, Cassidy, survived a gunshot wound by playing dead, then called police and identified her aunt's ex-husband, 33-year-old Ronald Lee Haskell, as the gunman. Records show he had a history of domestic violence.
Haskell was arrested a few hours later after a police standoff and now is facing multiple charges of capital murder.
