Franklin Regional student able to eat solid food month after stabbing



One of the students critically injured in the Franklin Regional High School stabbing rampage was able to eat solid food for the first time today and hopes to return home soon, his family said.

Forbes Hospital released a statement from Connor Warwick's parents saying the 16-year-old’s recovery is going well.

He was among the first students stabbed April 9 by a knife-wielding student. In all, 20 students and a security guard were injured in the attack.

Connor and sophomore Greg Keener, 15, are the only students who remain hospitalized. Greg is in fair condition at Forbes.

The suspect in the stabbing, Alex Hribal, a junior from Murrysville, remains in the Westmoreland County juvenile detention center, charged as an adult with 21 counts of attempted homicide, 21 counts of aggravated assault and a single count of carrying a weapon on school property.

At the request of his defense attorney, a preliminary hearing for Alex is now scheduled for June 4 at the Westmoreland County Courthouse.
