BELGRADE, Mont. (AP) - A Montana State-Northern student who was stabbed during a weekend home invasion in Havre remains hospitalized in Billings as she recovers from more than 20 stab wounds.

The family of 19-year-old Taylor Woolman tells the Belgrade News that one of the stab wounds Woolman suffered early on May 2 pierced her brain.

She was able to squeeze her parents’ hands and wiggled her right foot the next day, but could not move her left leg or foot. Her family says she answered questions by writing on a piece of paper because she was still on a breathing tube.

A spokeswoman at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle says another victim - 19-year-old Sam Mix - has been discharged from the hospital. Dean Mix told KIRO-TV that doctors said it was a miracle his son survived such a brutal attack.

Another student, 20-year-old Alicia Schneid, suffered seven stab wounds.

Woolman is on Northern’s volleyball team while Mix plays football for the Lights.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of three counts of attempted deliberate homicide along with aggravated burglary.
