Lifeway For Youth Appealing State's Recommendation To Shut It Down In Ohio

The foster care agency that placed Marcus Fiesel, Lifeway For Youth, will appeal the state's recommendation that its license be revoked.

Ohio's Department of Job and Family Services said earlier this week that it found nearly 150 rules that were broken by the agency with 27 of them in the Fiesel case, alone.

Lifeway placed the three year old developmentally challenged boy with Liz and David Carroll who are now charged with killing him.

In a statement, Lifeway's director Michael Burner said, "Pending the outcome of the appeal, we will continue to manage the programs currently active in the state of Ohio."  The group that operates in other states as well as Ohio has the right to do so until the appeals process runs its course.
