This was Michael Sciavo's worst nightmare; that his wife Terri should regain speech and testify how she became so oxygen deprived that her brain was forever damaged. He had promised to give her speech therapy with the malpractice award money, but he never did. He needed her silence.
Haleigh was slated for euthansia, but her stepfather, her attacker fought to keep her alive, perhaps to avoid being charged for her murder. Now she may testify against him in court.
The dark lesson in this is: if you're going to kill a loved one, make sure they're dead before you call the ambulance. Not everyone is as lucky as Michael Sciavo.
