Ron Haskell, the jealous uncle who shot and killed his former in-laws and four of their children execution-style, collapsed as the charges against him were announced during his first court hearing on Friday, July 11.

On Wednesday, July 9, Ron Haskell, 34, allegedly forced his way into his former in-law’s home and ultimately shot and killed them as they sat on the floor with their hands behind their heads. On Friday, July 11, the accused ruthless killer made his first court appearance, and while prosecutors read the charges being pressed against Ron, he collapsed onto the floor not once, but twice.

Texas Shooter Collapses In Court After Slaying Family Of 6

Did he not see those charges coming?

The murderous man who took the life of his ex-sister in law, her husband, and four of their five children on July 9, collapsed while hearing the charges against him in a Texas courtroom on Friday morning, July 11.

Standing before a state district judge in shackles, fell to the ground during his probable cause hearing, according to AP. The father of three was helped back to his feet by authorities in the courtroom, but collapsed again a moment later.

After collapsing for the second time, Ronald was lifted into a wheelchair and rolled out of the courtroom once the hearing ended. His defense attorney told reporters that he believes his client fainted.

Not surprisingly, the attorney also revealed that they will be focusing heavily on Ronald’s mental health during this horrific murder case.

Ronald has been charged with six counts of capital murder for allegedly shooting and killing his sister in law Katie Stay, her husband Stephen, and four out of five of their children — ages ranging from 4 to 13. The shooter was reportedly looking for his ex-wife, Melanie Lyon, who is Katie’s sister.

There is one sole survivor from Ronald’s gruesome attack on the Stay family, and that is their 15-year-old daughter, Cassidy. The family revealed that even though she was shot in the head, she is expected to make a full recovery.

Our thoughts continue to go out to the Stay and Lyon families at this time.

HWL got this story all wrong! in the beginning.
They claimed the kids biologically belonged to the killer!
This guy was the uncle by marriage! not the Biological dad!
He was looking for his ex-wife.
They’d gotten divorce which was finalized on Valentine’s day of this year.
He got into the home and tied up whoever was there. As other family members came home, they were also tied up.
He probably questioned them about his ex-wife’s where about’s.
Regardless of the answers he then shot everybody execution style in the head.
Killing everyone except the oldest daughter, who played dead until the killer left.
She freed herself called for help and told the police who did it and that he was headed to her grandparents house next.
