LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — A state prosecutor has decided to assemble a special grand jury to investigate the workings of a social services department that allegedly ignored reports of child abuse and neglect.

The Roanoke Times reports Rockbridge County Commonwealth’s Attorney Christopher Billias is assembling the grand jury.

Billias said he is troubled by a recent internal review by the Rockbridge social services department that found several problems with the agency, including evidence that a former Rockbridge Area Department of Social Services supervisor shredded reports before they could be investigated.

The reported cited the death of a 3-month-old girl who the department failed to help after she was identified as “high risk” living in an unfit home.
