The Department of Human Services this morning announced at a press conference that seven more employees would be suspended in the wake of a grisly grand-jury report that found that a 14-year-old girl rotted in her bed because of the agency's brutal indifference.

The suspended employees include: Pamela Mayo, Children and Youth Division Operations Director; Wesley Brown, a social service program director; Janice Walker, a supervisor; Martha Poller, who has admitted to tampering with records; Shawn Davis, a supervisor; Ingrid Hawke, a social work supervisor, and Valerie Mond, a supervisor.

A grand jury last week criminally charged two DHS social workers - Dana Poindexter, 51, and Laura Sommerer, 33 - with felony counts of child endangerment and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment. They were suspended last week.
