West Hartford community in mourning following stabbing death

The loss is tremendous. A 12-year-old West Hartford boy allegedly stabbed to death his twin sister and critically injured his mother.

Tonight hundreds of children and parents and families walked into the Saint Patrick Saint Anthony church in Hartford looking for answers looking for comfort and looking for hope.

While there wasn’t much people could do for the family, there was a message to send.

 A strong message. Father Thomas Gallagher says all the people standing shoulder to shoulder, isle to isle shows the family we are standing here for you.

“The solidarity when the community comes together to pray and support one another and then continue to offer that support to the family itself.”

And as people remember the 12-year-old girl, they are also praying for the boy in custody, the mother in the hospital, and the father.
