Ohio Agency Will Review Group Homes After Slaying
A children’s services agency in central Ohio says it will review all of its group home placements after a 16-year-old group home resident was charged with fatally stabbing a jogger in a park.
Franklin County Children Services announced the plans Wednesday night. They came in response to a 16-year-old foster child being charged with the fatal stabbing of a 55-year-old woman in Ridgewood Park on Oct. 20.
Officials said the review will include visits with each foster child and a study of supervision levels and qualifications of staff.
Agency executive director Chip Spinning said the review process will include a look at children “with any fixation on violence or weapons.”
He said the agency wants “to do everything possible to learn from this.”
