Stabbing Victim Released From Hospital After Taunton Rampage

A woman who sustained life-threatening injuries during a deadly rampage in Taunton, Massachusetts, was released from the hospital Friday.

The Bristol County District Attorney's Office confirms that Kathleen Slavin had been released, noting that she would need the support of the community in Taunton.

Prosecutors say that Arthur DaRosa broke into a home on Myricks Street and stabbed Slavin and her 80-year-old mother, Patricia Slavin, who died from her injuries.

The younger Slavin was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

DaRosa allegedly went on to attack three others at the Silver City Galleria mall, where teacher George Heath was stabbed to death and others were injured.

Off-duty police officer Plymouth County deputy sherrif Jimmy Creed shot DaRosa to death.
