A panel reviewing child deaths and severe abuse cases has approved its first annual report without including recommendations on how to improve Kentucky's child protection system.
The panel was tasked by the governor with reviewing case files of children who died or nearly died from abuse or neglect and making recommendations to improve the state's child protection system.
Retired Circuit Judge Roger Crittenden, who heads the group, said statutory or regulatory revisions will likely be proposed by 2015.
