He'll recover and face capital murder charges for killing the boy's mother and a friend of the mother.

Stabbed in the chest and barely conscious, the 11-year-old boy managed to utter a suspect's name.

Corey Hiller, 36, is the man police said also fatally stabbed the boy's mother, Rhonda Hammonds, and her friend, Casey Sweetwood, before dawn Thursday at a house in the 4500 block of Emil on the East Side.
