DENVER - The Denver Housing Authority has found a way to keep a family from being immediately evicted from subsidized housing after a mother was killed by a rampaging gunman.
The housing authority says it was forced to lock out 70-year-old Doris Kessler and the mother's autistic son under federal law because Sandra Roskilly was the head of the household in subsidized housing and Kessler wasn't allowed to be on the lease because she lived there as a live-in aide.
According to 9NEWS Reporter Dave Delozier, Kessler's son and Roskilly's brother - Dennis Campbell - was appointed as the executor of Roskilly's estate. This will allow the family one month to remove the items from the home and take them to another location.
The family has made arrangements for Kessler to move in with one of her sons.
