Young Stabbing Victim Home From Hospital

(Brooklyn, NY) -- The seven-year-old girl who was stabbed 16 times in a Brooklyn elevator ten days ago is home from the hospital. An emotional Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement yesterday.

Mikayla Capers can walk by herself but isn't completely recovered and is still undergoing physical therapy. Her family plans to move out of the Boulevard Houses where she was attacked and her six-year-old friend PJ Avitto was stabbed to death. Police, meanwhile, are still trying to determine whether Daniel St. Hubert, who's charged in the attacks on the kids, is also responsible for the death of Tanaya Copeland. The 18-year-old Brooklyn nursing student was stabbed two days earlier and was buried yesterday.
