Children Services To Review Group Home Placements

Nov 1, 2013

Franklin County Children Services 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 Blendon Township park on October 20th.

The review will include visits with each foster child and a study of supervision levels and qualifications of staff. Agency director Chip Spinning says the review will include a look at children "with any fixation on violence or weapons." 16-year-old Jordan Stewart is charged with a delinquency count of murder in the death of 55-year-old Jane Juergens at Ridgewood Park.
