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.
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."
