HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- A survivor of a shooting that killed three people at the University of Alabama in Huntsville says he tries not to think of the former colleague awaiting trial in the slayings.

UAH professor Joseph Leahy spoke at a church fundraising dinner Sunday night. Leahy was shot in the head but has returned to teaching, and he says life is getting back to normal.

Leahy says he tries not to think of former UAH professor Amy Bishop, who is jailed awaiting trial in the shootings. Leahy says he has no doubt Bishop will get the death penalty.

Bishop is set to go on trial Sept. 24. Her lawyers say she was suffering from mental problems at the time of the shooing in February 2010.
