Milton Helps Students Grieve After Sisters' Killings

This article is more than 10 years old.

Milton schools are offering extra counseling services to help students deal with the brutal killings of two young girls this weekend.

Milton High School opened the school to parents and students Sunday and has extra counselors available Monday to meet with students.

Principal John Drottar says it's "impossible" to make sense of the tragedy, but the kids are getting support from teachers and staff.

"People are at a lack to understand it," Drottar says, "But you can kind of support each other and help each other overcome it."

Kerby Revelus is accused of stabbing his 17-year-old sister to death, severing the head of his five-year-old sister, and trying to stab his nine-year-old sister, on Saturday.

The nine-year-old survived and is hospitalized.

Police shot and killed Revelus when they responded to the nine-year-old's 911 call.
