The Spring, Texas shooter who allegedly killed six of his family members execution-style fainted in court today. The Associated Press reports that Ronald Lee Haskell, 33, collapsed after hearing a prosecutor read the charges against him.

Haskell managed to get back up but collapsed again a minute later. "He was then lifted into a chair and wheeled from the courtroom," according to the report. He's being treated in jail. The prosecutor, Tammy Thomas, says she expects a grand jury to indict Haskell for capital murder.

On Wednesday, Haskell forced his way into his ex-wife's sister's home, tied up the family of seven, and shot them execution-style. The only survivor was a 15-year-old Cassidy Stay, who played dead until police arrived.
