Officials in a central Ohio community are pledging action in the aftermath of the slaying of a jogger in a local park — allegedly by a teen who lived in a local group home.
Before the trustees met Wednesday night, about 175 people gathered for a candlelight vigil to remember Jane Juergens, the 55-year-old woman who was fatally stabbed Sunday in Ridgewood Park.
A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Juergens was stabbed 26 times with a knife, according to a preliminary report from the county coroner's office.
