FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A panel appointed by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to review cases of severe child abuse and neglect says it expects to issue its first report later this year.

The Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel began meeting last November after Beshear created it through an executive order.

As part of its responsibilities, the Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel is required to issue an annual report that includes suggestions for changes that could improve child welfare.

Panel Chairman Judge Roger Crittenden told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/128ildg) that he expects to have a draft report done in September and a final report that would be issued in December.
