Wisconsin Boy Recovering After Being Shot in Head


(Leader-Telegram) – A southwestern Wisconsin boy who was shot in the head by his mother more than two years ago has been released from a brain injury rehabilitation facility in Arkansas and is living with relatives.

Joey Slaight, 11, was released from the facility in April, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. He recently celebrated the progress in his recovery with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas.

“It’s just incredible that he’s able to even go on a trip like this or run and laugh and have fun,” said Andra Munoz, Slaight’s aunt. “I mean, it’s really sobering when you think about the fact that we made this trip.”

Joey now lives with Munoz, her husband, Jason, and their four children in Oklahoma. CONTINUE
