The former director of Indiana's child welfare agency is joining the state attorney general's staff nearly a month after she quit her state post.
In a resignation letter to Gov. Eric Holcomb, Bonaventura said the governor's staff is cutting her budget and services in the midst of the opioid crisis.
The report from the Indiana Department of Child Services says 12 children died from abuse and 54 from neglect.
There are two baby boxes installed at fire stations in Indiana and plans to install more in the central part of the state.
The DCS says baby boxes should be removed and on Noon Edition we answer questions about new overtime rules set to go into effect in December.
Judge Mary Beth Bonaventura will be the third person to head the Department of Child Services within the past seven months.
