FILE - In this March 12, 1991 file photo, William Flynn, 17,  testifies in Exeter, N.H., March 12, 1991 in the Pamela Smart murder conspiracy trial.  Flynn was moved to a minimum-security prison this past week as part of a work-release program. At 15, he began a torrid affair with Pamela Smart, his teacher for a self-esteem course at his high school. Flynn was convicted of killing Gregg Smart in May 1990, a week before the couple Cassidy Stay, right, the lone survivor of a family massacre in Texas, wipes her eyes as she sits next to her uncle Drew Lyons during a community memorial at Lemm Elementary School on Saturday, July 12, 2014, in Spring, Texas. Stay was grazed in the head during Wednesday's attack that killed her parents and four siblings. She played dead until the shooter left, then despite suffering a fractured skull managed to call 911.
