But West Hartford Mayor Shari Cantor has provided a statement from the family.
The statement says the family is “enduring a very painful and unimaginable loss” and asks for privacy. It says the slain girl was a “beautiful child” who will be remembered for her smile and laughter.
The mother remains hospitalized in stable condition. The boy was hospitalized because he sustained a minor injury.
