WARSAW, Ind. (WFFT) - A consultancy group hired by Gov. Eric Holcomb reviewed Indiana's troubled child welfare agency is presenting its findings.

The Republican governor's office says the Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group made recommendations and detailed "key findings" on Monday.

The group was hired in December in the wake of a scathing resignation letter from his outgoing Department of Child Services director. Mary Beth Bonaventura accused Holcomb's administration of cutting services and making management changes that "all but ensure children will die."

The Department of Child Services will hold a press conference in Warsaw Tuesday, and the DCS Director Terry Stigdon will be answering questions about the results to better help Indiana's children.
