PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Four Philadelphia social workers are on trial on charges of criminal fraud in a case that involves the starvation death of a disabled teenager.
Federal prosecutors say the defendants conspired after the girl's death to falsify documents about family visits. The four include the top supervisors at a company that the city paid $1 million a year to oversee at-risk families.
Those families included that of 14-year-old Danieal (DAN'-yell) Kelly. Her mother later pleaded guilty to third-degree murder in her August 2006 death.
In opening statements Wednesday, a defense lawyer says the company, MultiEthnic Behavioral Health Inc., was paid for social work, not medical expertise.
